I'm now ready to move WebCore/layout-tests, I just need someone to  
review my patch:


The reason I send this note to the whole group is to inform you all  
of what this change means (and to get your feedback):

1.  LayoutTests/ will now have it's own ChangeLog.
2.  prepare-ChangeLog will add a "WARNING: NO TEST CASES ADDED" line  
to your WebCore change log if you try and run it w/o having made any  
"cvs adds" in LayoutTests/
3. checkout and update-webkit now also support a --notests (or --no- 
tests) option to disable checkout/update of the layout tests.[1]

There will also likely be some CVS confusion as CVS figures out to  
delete all of your old layout tests and check out the new ones.  I  
won't know those details until kvv actually makes the move.

Any comments, questions?


1. I can see it as being a common scenerio running "update-webkit -- 
notests" most of the day, then finally when you're ready to test your  
final change running the full update-webkit, and checking to make  
sure you pass the most recent copies of the tests, etc.
