RE: W3C Testing How To slides

I believe it's a lot of extra work without a lot of benefit.
* Set up new accounts and commit privileges (additional ongoing cost)
* Setup scripts to mirror all the content and php files so that it replicates to
* This won't work for all the various WGs so the reality is that everyone will  end up doing some work in Hg and Github and the W3C will have to spend time/$$ supporting both.

I'd rather see people focus their energy writing test cases than move to another source control system.
The content today is read-only (for HTML) and like Hg a 'pull' can be done without any type of permissions.

I would too.

It'll be a lower barrier for doing pull requests etc.
