It is correct that people who work on WebKit usually have a checkout. So I was taking about people who don't work on WebKit. > If they don’t work on WebKit, then you could run wptserve on a machine > somewhere and link to that copy.

Yes, there is a number of things one could do. Those things would work in some cases but not in others - I mentioned linking to a stable version that won't change, which is something that trac gives us for free, and it would be non-trivial to implement otherwise. In practice, the best approach would be to reduce the test to a minimum that doesn't use complex harnesses before ending it over. Everyone likes minimal test cases. - Alexey
