   Kai: I'm writing up a guide on how to run the framework on linux
   ... not sure how people are supposed to contribute to that framework
   without running it
   ... it's quite hard to get it running, and thus quite hard to
   contributes tests to it

   Wilhelm: we have set up a server where internally people can just
   push their tests

   Kai: but how would we open that up to a larger audience?

   Wilhelm: it could work to open up write access with quick moderation

   Kai: quick moderation sounds tricky

   ISSUE: how to open up access to WTF

   <trackbot> Created ISSUE-5 - How to open up access to WTF ; please
   complete additional details at
   [12]http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/Tests/track/issues/5/edit .

   on the contribution guide for widgets test suites -- due 2009-07-07
   -- OPEN

   <trackbot> [13]http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/Tests/track/actions/62

     [13] http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/Tests/track/actions/62

   Kai: I've made some progress on the regular widget tests suites
   ... still need to match it up with the test plan
   ... that needs an update since the assertions have changed
   ... I have spent some time filling up the test plan boxes

     [14] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/suite/

   <hendry> Marcos:

     [15] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/plan.html

   Marcos: would like to expand on what Dom has started by adding the
   notion of classes of products
   ... and start by populating the tables

   Kai: we already have that table


     [16] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/plan.html

   Marcos: the assertions are still changing a bit; I would need
   someone to review them btw

   <scribe> ACTION: Dom to update the test plan with the latest
   assertions [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-66 - Update the test plan with the latest
   assertions [on Dominique Hazaël-Massieux - due 2009-08-04].

   <hendry> [18]http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/

     [18] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/

   Kai: the other confusing thing is Marcos' document with the
   extracted test assertions
   ... will it be different? the same document?

   <hendry> [19]http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/ versus

     [19] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/
     [20] http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/tests/plan.html

   Marcos: I'd like to see a way to match the plan to the assertions
   ... I could add an id to each line/paragraph

   Dom: it would help if each assertion had a more stable id than they
   do right now
   ... probably not a big deal for this doc, but would be useful going
   ... also, the notion of adding a class per assertion to classify per
   class of product would be great

   Marcos: what about the review of test assertions?

   Dom: I think we'll send feedback as we find problems in the

   Marcos: ok, I'll add ids to the assertions then

   Kai: sounds really good


   <trackbot> ACTION-63 -- Dominique Hazaël-Massieux to add testing

     [22] http://dabase.com/blog/Contribute_Widget_tests/

   Marcos: a widget test contribution guide would be very useful

   Kai: I'd be happy to improve my current doc if that's helpful

   Marcos: We'll need a fairly wide review of the test suite if we want
   it to be reliable and useful, esp. if we're getting external
   ... providing templates for building test cases would be useful
   ... maybe that's something we can work on together

   <scribe> ACTION: Kai to work with Marcos on developing templates and
   contributions guide [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-67 - Work with Marcos on developing
   templates and contributions guide [on Kai Hendry - due 2009-08-04].

   templates used in the widget suite so far

     [24] http://git.webvm.net/?p=wgtqa;a=tree;f=misc;

   Marcos: we'll see if there are templates we can contribute

   Wilhelm: and maybe even test cases

   Kai: what about licensing?

   the Policies for Contribution of Test Cases to W3C - in particular,
