Bugzilla for the current plan for better platform-specific layout test support.
Corresponding wiki page:


Each platform configuration should define one variable, $platformTestDirectory,
that specifies the most specific directory under LayoutTests/platform/ that
applies to that platform. For instance, on Mac OS X Leopard, mac-leopard should
be specified.

This name is broken into all possible hyphenated prefixes. For example, if a
platform specifies a-b-c as its $platformTestDirectory, the directories in its
platform hierarchy become (in order of decreasing specificity): a-b-c -> a-b ->

run-webkit-tests should search recursively through all the subdirectories of
LayoutTests/ to find test files, just as it does currently. However, it should
not search beneath platform/. It should then search through each of the
directories in the platform hierarchy to find additional platform-specific
tests to run.
