RE: Refactoring SharedWorkers out of Web Workers W3C spec

Thanks James. I'll wait till the broken tests are fixed to re-review the IE results.

No, this is based on a new-ish tool that itself depends on the
self-hosted-tests changes [1].

If Travis can make the results available in the same JSON format the
tool uses then we can incorporate them directly; having a common,
machine-writable format is the essential point of this work. However I
would suggest that he waits until we fix the broken tests and land the
self-hosted-tests changes and test runner / report generator. If people
are interesting in speeding this process up, the most valuable thing
they can do is help finish the review at [1].
