Is there any documentation on how to use the manifest.py generator for
the WPT  test runner?

(Other than just reading through 600 lines of almost completely
uncommented code?  I'm a python newbie.)

I'm creating a new set of tests in a new directory and want to try
them in the runner, but when I try to run the tool I get "Not writing
manifest because working directory is not clean."  It's not an error
that's really helping me out...

Can I not run the tool until I've committed my tests? Until they've
been pushed to my remote fork? Merged to the upstream master?

Do I need to write a manifest for my test cases?

Is it just generated automatically for all the tests?  How do I
indicate what kind of tests they are?

 It's not obvious to me where to start here, in part because I've
already run the tool so I don't know what is generated vs. what is
baseline, and my previous questions indicated that people had checked
in things that really should've been generated... etc.
