But less so when they dont appear anywhere whatsoever or are deleted.
Some tests were moved to WIP against my wishes :P

I agree, but it all really depends on why the test is WIP.

Those that do not appear on TESTLIST should be checked why not. So who
put them in, do they have a directory they forgot to git add ?

I'm okay with notifying test owners of missing tests they have 1-2 weeks
to fix or the TESTLIST entry will be removed.

But I don't agree to the same for WIP tests that are in git :P

After this week, I would like to know what "we" are going to do. Bring
