Git submodules work the way that they point to a specific revision
that's known to work. So wpt-platform-tests repository was pointing to
an old version. I did a commit pointing it to the newest master of

It'll work correctly for new checkouts now. For the ones that already
have one, they should do an update:

git stash # Stash whatever you were working on (this saves non-committed

git checkout master
git pull --ff-only
git submodule update # this should update wptserve now
git checkout <branch_you_were_working_on>

git stash pop # < this gets back your current non-committed work
