In fact, it's just a template for the teams to work on their own tests. 
If you look at the German group for example, you will see that they have 
a well structured table per version

We are currently putting Litmus in place, even if it's no more 
develop/maintained by the Mozilla team, the new tool they will provide 
is not yet ready.
We need to do some adaptation to Litmus because we are meeting some 
bugs. Rimas is taking care of it and he is in relation with the Mozilla 
team. I think there is some perl script to push, not sure however where 
we are with this currently.
It would be good to know if we can go on and write TCS for the next 
release of if we still have to go with the wiki.

Litmus will host the tests run on RC versions, on L10n versions and on 
dev versions too. So for the moment, until we have Litmus in place, I 
know that most of the NL teams won't run the tests. They need to have a 
easy framework in place to run them, because most of them are very short 
in resources.
