Great. Thanks for doing this.

I do not have any strong opinion here. I am not sure if people would use
Litmus for feature testing at all. I think that the current structure is
a good start.

IMHO, if nobody objects within next 2-3 days, we could branch it for 3.5
release, so people could enter test cases for the 3.5 features.

BTW: Do you have any plans to create more test cases?

As you like. It might help to synchronize the test cases for different

I think that it is only a provisional solution. I hope that we will be
able to implement the checkbox for lang-dependent test cases and handle
it in test run and results statistic. Then we could get rid of the l10n
testgroups and merge all tests into common P1,P2,P3,P4 testgroups.

Sounds reasonable. 

Thanks a lot for working on this.
