In short, what Adam just said :)

In long(-er),

Your annoyance is quite understandable. I won't go into the reasons
for the delay, but the major technical reason has been fixed, finally.
These are the issues that I am aware of that remain:

* There are GTK bots that run NRWT as well as the Chromium bots
* I have been in conversations a bit w/ wms and lforschler to get the
apple mac port using it
* There are a couple of known minor bugs with the mac port
* There are some known minor features missing
* There are known issues with the apple win port not working (this is
probably the biggest issue keeping things from working, but it
shouldn't be too hard to surmount).

I hope to make rapid progress on all of these fronts, and pull
together all of the others issues into a single fairly easily
trackable spot.

I would like to be able to either say we're fully cut over or at least
give a good update at the meeting in April.

>> Can someone explain the new-run-webkit-tests situation to me?  The name suggests it is intended to replace run-webkit-tests. 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?
