[webkit-dev] Renaming directories

Here’s my attempt to list the tests we currently have:

    - Automated regression tests (from LayoutTests directory). Many different types: Layout/pixel, text, script-tests, ref-tests coming soon, some requiring local server, some JavaScript only. Better organization needed. Need to replace old driver with new driver for non-Chromium platforms. Our #1 most critical tests. Includes copies of some entire test suites, such as ietestcenter and CSS 2.1 and sputnik.

    - Manual regression tests (in WebCore/manual-tests directory). These would be in the primary regression tests if we found a way to automate them. A good project for a contributor would be to convert these to automated tests one at a time to try to empty this directory.

    - Automated DOM binding generation regression tests (in WebCore/bindings/scripts/test).

    - JavaScript regression tests from Mozilla (in JavaScriptCore/tests/mozilla). We would like run-webkit-tests to know how to run these, but currently it does not.

    - SunSpider JavaScript performance test (in SunSpider).

    - SVG page load test performance test (in PageLoadTests/svg). I am not familiar with this one.

    - Platform-specific unit tests (in WebKit/chromium/tests, WebKit/gtk/tests, and WebKit/qt/tests). Not familiar with these, how they are run, or what their coverage are.

    - Python regression tests. Not sure where they are, but I see these failing on the bots so I know they exist.

Maybe this list will give us some ideas about how we want to organize tests in the future.
