Hi there,

I was planning to send this before but I found an issue that cause me
a lot of trouble [1]. After that patch and that one that updated the
gtk-wk2 Skipped files [2] we can continue working in all the features that
are missing from the WebKitTestRunner to make it as good option as the
the old DumpRenderTree. So I've added a bug to allow us following that


If you are interested in contributing just pick a bug there that is
not assigned or check the gtk-wk2/Skipped file for the missing parts
and upload a bug (and link it in the metabug). I hope this helps
people to contribute for WebKit2 stuff.

Two points, careful if [2] is not applied and just add -2 parameter to
the run-webkit-tests to run the WebKit2 stuff.

When we have this basic support in place we will be able to add a bot,
and check issues in WebKit2 more esily.

Happy hacking!
