(Bcc'd public-css-testsuite and public-test-infra; this pertains to a
CSS WG proposed resolution and hence we should keep discussion on the
CSS WG's public mailing list.)

The proposed resolution is to merge csswg-test into
web-platform-tests, doing the following:

1. Land https://github.com/w3c/wpt-tools/pull/90 into wpt-tools so
that the web-platform-tests tools create an accurate manifest (i.e.,
list of tests) for the CSS testsuite.

2. Add a number of lints to wpt-tools, for the (currently
non-existent) css subdirectory, to ensure that the build system keeps
working (primarily we need lints to ensure that we have no duplicate
file-extensionless-basenames that aren't byte-for-byte identical and
that all files referenced by test files are in an adjacent support or
reference directory, with a couple of exceptions).

3. Ensure web-platform-tests's documentation is up-to-date and
cohesive, both for submitting tests and reviewing them. Especially
make sure it's easier to find documentation than it is currently!

4. Make https://hg.csswg.org/test/ and http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/
read-only. (Really this can be any step up until this point; exact
timing doesn't matter.)

5. Merge csswg-test into web-platform-tests, in a css/ subdirectory,
maintaining all csswg-test history. (Do we want to copy w3ctestlib and
apiclient into it as well, given they currently live in Mercurial, and
are needed to build?)

6. Move over, at the very least, all open issues and PRs from the
csswg-test repository.

7. (Sometime in the more distant future) drop the current build system
and the lints we had for its requirements.

I believe Alan's opinion was to give people a week to respond on the
mailing list and then potentially have a final call for objections (or
discussion!) on the next telecon (5 Oct). I'll let the chairs to say
what they want to do, though. :)
