Tools / process for building the MathML test suite?


I am an editor of the User Agent Accessibility
Guidelines (UAAG) 1.0 [1],  which has recently entered 
Candidate Recommendation  status. I am also Team contact 
for the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines Working 
Group (UAWG).

While MathML and UAAG are different types of documents,
I think that UAAG would benefit greatly from one or
more test suites resembling the one created for MathML.
UAAG 1.0 provides accessibility guidelines 
that are independent of any particular format 
(HTML, SVG, even MathML). It is clear to our WG
that developers will have a much easier time working
with the document if we provide them with supplemental,
format-specific materials. 

During Candidate Recommendation, I hope to coordinate 
the development of such materials for a number of 
formats (e.g., HTML, SVG, SMIL, and why not MathML!). 
I am wondering what process the MathML WG adopted 
to create the test suite. For instance, was there a 
particular process followed to submit/approve tests? 
What tools were used to create the test files or
to generate the test suite?

Thank you for any advice or pointers you can offer.
