Hello everyone,

I've been working on building tests for the WebDriver spec and am to the point where I want to submit a batch (about 40-50 tests). There is an issue, though, so I'd like to get your advice.

I Forked the PYTHON test suite that is up on GitHub [1]. I then converted the tests to be JavaScript based instead of PYTHON. I'm using Node and some custom code to make it all work.

I chose to modify the tests because I don't know PYTHON myself, but also because I feel like every web developer who will care about the test suite will know JavaScript but only some percentage of them will know PYTHON.

So, I was hoping for some advice: do you think I should put the modifications to the test suite I made up on GitHub as a sibling to the PYTHON tests so everyone can take a look and we can talk about it at the Face-to-Face?

I could also put it on the Internet Explorer GitHub location if you think it's too messy to have them both in the same place.
