We definitely do that. In fact, we usually ask the experts to provide
starter tests that serve as good examples upon which new authors can build
new tests. These starter tests are almost always actual tests that have
been approved. Of course, the difference here is that they're reviewing
tests as a learning mechanism vs. reviewing them to bless them for all.
I'm fairly certain we wouldn't expect (or want) newcomers to be
responsible for the latter.

We very much appreciate that!

The registration page is not yet open, but will be soon. We're just
waiting to confirm down a few logistics in tying it into TPAC. We'll
certainly broadcast widely once it's open.  As far as a deadline, there
won't be one. People will be able to register right up until the day
before the event, but it may be a 'sooner the better' situation, because
we will have limited capacity, after which we'll do a wait-list.

Too bad! But thanks again for helping to encourage people in your WG to
