I've posted a new snapshot of the CSS2.1 test suite on the w3.org website:

This version of the test suite snapshot should include all submitted tests,
whether or not they have passed review, except for:
    - hixie's tests, because they're missing the metadata for indexing
    - Mozilla's reftest submissions, because I haven't added reftests support yet
    - I18n Core's tests, because I haven't looked into adding them yet.

This snapshot uses a new build system: the test suite build system has been
rewritten in Python. The old system, while a brilliant pile of bash scripting,
xargs tricks, and perl regular expressions, was getting a little too unweildy.

System improvements include:
   - support for sourcing multiple directories
   - lxml parsing + html5lib serialization => higher-fidelity XHTML->HTML conversion
   - more validation of format-related problems, with consolidated error-reporting
   - extensible architecture

Known regressions include:
   - xhtml1print format no longer converts PNG to JPEG (this is easily fixable)

We are now accepting feature requests! Currently on the list are:
   - reftest support
   - outputting into structured subdirectories
   - automatic zipfile generation

Please review the test suite and send feedback to public-css-testsuite@w3.org:
