[webkit-dev] A question about new-run-webkit-tests

NRWT is in use by the Chromium port. At some point I believe the Qt
port used it as well. It successfully runs the layout tests for Mac
and Win ports as well, last I tried. Obviously it has not replaced
ORWT, but I believe that is still the intention.
Work on NRWT (by me) stopped about a year ago, when we hit a critical
bug in Python' subprocess module, making NRWT hang on the Mac.
Others have worked on NWRT re-writes since then (to work around the
python bug, among other things).
There is a large amount of infrastructure built around NRWT in
chromium-land. Ojan's comment contains one example of such
I have no timeline for you, as I'm no longer working on NRWT. But others may.

It's been more than a year since it was added and it obviously hasn't replaced run-webkit-tests. As best as I can tell it's not used by any ports unless one happens to invoke it directly. It appears to has new functionality that run-webkit-tests lacks, but on the same note it appears to lack functionality that run-webkit-tests provides. Can someone please clarify the situation?
