The Browser Testing and Tools Working Group will meet at TPAC in Lyon, France.

Observers are welcome to attend our group meeting. If any observers are interested in participating in the work on the test suite or joining the group, we will happily assist with this.

The meeting will be minuted to the #webdriver IRC channel. All participants and observers are encouraged to join this channel in advance.


Unknown at this time.


The agenda will align with the overall TPAC agenda for group meetings:


We are meeting Thursday and Friday from 09:00 CEST.

The formal bits of the agenda will be split between technical discussions and concrete work on the specification and the conformance test suite. As we finish the technical discussions, we move on to work on the spec and the test suite.
