Agreed. It's why I'm asking here what people think it should be.

I'm talking about any kind of technologies. So let's say a LoveML is 
created and a Test Suite is created at the same time than features.

I can identify a few things:

- license issues for receiving test (contribution)
- license issues for publishing test
- cvs repository for the test cases
- packaging of the test suites
- manual of the test suites and each individual test cases
- Feature/Test assertions/Test Cases package
- Interoperability report
- tools to manage the test suites

All these kind of things might have influence on the work of a test 
leader. In which ways? Maybe just a guide detailing all the things that 
have to be organized and how to assign the tasks.

No. I'm asking the question because I have ideas but I prefer to have 
more input because people might think differently or will have ideas I 
didn't have. Maybe I was not clear enough about the context. It's not 
related to the QA WG, but to any kind of WGs.

New WGs are always struggling with the same questions and they come to 
a period of trying to define when it could be done before. :)
