I already added it to the Agenda ☺

I do remember talking about this during a F2F. In June of 2013 I was given the action of investigating running the tests at MS[1], but I did not do a very good job of following up until just recently.

This is something that Tobie and I talked about at great length before, and, form memory I think it's come up in a f2f before.

I'll add an agenda item for us to discuss (and decide) on the implementation language for the tests. Until then, I think David's suggestion is sound: let's get the code up for review so that we can have a reasoned discussion based on data rather than gut feel and instinct.

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.
