Hi Paul,

At the upcoming event, no, we don't have specific plans for either of those.  However, attendees are always welcome to write tests for any W3C spec they choose.  They just might now have a qualified expert to help them.

The reason we highlight a few specs for the event is to ensure there are experts on hand to provide good support new test authors in those areas. We choose these specs based on combination of things - who is available, what needs tests the most, where a spec is in its lifecycle (CR or near CR), etc.  Also, these events aren't exclusively for CSS test writing, so we tend to get a lot of support from the HTML and Webapps wgs, as well as a lot of interest from attendees to write those tests.    We typically advertise in advance what specs we're highlighting on the event page:


If you know of someone in your working group who is attending TPAC and would like to come to TestTWF  get some attention to these, please feel free to have them contact me.  We can't make promises on output, but if these specs are important to your WG, raising awareness is a good first step.

Hi Rebecca,

I’m currently serving as the Vice-Chair of the IEEE-ISTO Printer Working Group Semantic Model working group. The PWG participated in the recent W3C workshop titled “Publishing and the Open Web Platform” http://www.w3.org/2012/12/global-publisher/.

In looking at existing W3C CSS test suites, I have not seen any development activity in either of the following CSS test suites for a number of years now:


Do you know whether any developers attending the upcoming TPAC might be contributing any CSS Printing or CSS Paged Media related test suites?

Subject: TestTWF Pull requests needing review

Hi CSSians,

As many of you know, we'll approaching the next Test the Web Forward event at TPAC in Shenzhen in a couple of weeks.  These are extraordinary occasions where local web developers volunteer their weekends to come learn & contribute tests for our body of specs. It's our hope that they remain in our community and write more tests in the future and we believe a key to this is acknowledging and accepting their contributions in a timely manner.

At the events, we typically have many experts on hand and we're doing a better job at each one in getting these tests reviewed and approved during the actual event. However, inevitably there are always some left at the end of day that still need review.  Most recently over the summer, there were three events that produced lots of tests: two in Tokyo and one in Shanghai and we still have some pull requests from those events that need review.

If you're an editor on one of these specs or if you have solid knowledge of any of these areas, you're a qualified reviewer! If you have a little time, our newest test authors would greatly appreciate your feedback.

See the full list of PRs organized by spec below [1]

Reviewing is easy now with Github, just add your comments inline.  We've also got some guidance on things to look for [2][3].  I am monitoring the repo and will take care of merging things that are approved – a simple "LGTM" is fine.

Also, it's very easy to subscribe to track incoming PRs or follow reviews – just click the Watch button at the top of the repo page [4].
