- Test Approval - the group will review and approve submitted tests. Approved tests will be used to determine if a Candidate Recommendation is interoperable. See WebApps' Test Approval wiki for more information.
- Test Repository - the group will use Hg as its test repository. Within this repository, tests will be organized by their Submitter(s) to assure proper attribution. See WebApps' Test Submission wiki for more information.
