As you know Litmus was only a default choice because we didn't find
anything better that could fit our needs. There is a new tool
developed by the Mozilla Foundation, but it won't be available before
some time from what I know. However, Rimas and Yi Fan have managed to
make it more comfortable and it's what we use for now.
The best way for the moment, would be to add the tests on the wiki and
and admin to add them to Litmus. I know it's less easy and open than
we would like however.
