Do we have any real cases where someone refused to contribute tests 
because of a hg versus git barrier? If yes, please send me the links.

Coremob presumably has a bunch of non-W3C people (let's consider them 
part of the "developer community" above) and its charter includes "test 
suites" as a primary deliverable. What's the contribution success from 
that CG? I ask because I'm wondering what we should consider as 
realistic expectations for test contributions from this "community", 
especially vis-a-vis the use of "rely" above.

-Thanks, Art
