Peter,

I believe many things should be sorted out in CSS test repository.

Examples given:

1- Duplicated tests in the same section

Go to
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/nightly-unstable/html4/chapter-10.htm#s10.8.1
and then search for vertical-align-004
and you will get 2 occurences of the same test. Same thing for the whole 
serie of vertical-align-* tests. Eg
vertical-align-baseline-010 is duplicated

2- Duplicated flags or new inserted flags
http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/search/
lists
Ahem
ahem
ahem,
ahem,interact

and that's just 1 flag. There is a few other flags listed that should 
not be: CSS, css3,

3- Lots of duplicated support image

4- Duplicated folders or unmerged folders

What I described in

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-css-testsuite/2014May/0020.html

still exists.

5- Hundreds otherwise thousands of tests need work, tuning, review, etc, 
etc..

I am not trying to blame anyone here. I think having a 24+ thousands of 
tests covering 45 test suites "place" (with all kinds of documentation, 
protocols, events, tools and carefully tweaked softwares) created by 
hundreds of people around the whole planet is an extraordinary 
accomplishment ... which would most likely require cleaning up, fixing, 
etc.
