Thanks, that's very useful.

The test suite maintenance can be taken over by another WG. Even if not
maintained it will be publicly available, see e.g the ITS 1.0 test suite.

I think we need a volunteer to answer this question. LT-Web hat on: that
would be TCD's deliverable. Would you or probably somebody else from TCD
have the resources to explore the test suites issues? WRT my action items,
for the package I think we need input from the working group, but there
needs to be somebody who gathers that input.

If TCD will work on this, would the test suite design a suitable topic for
the September meeting?

Best,

Felix
