[llvm-dev] Status of debuginfo-tests

What is the status of debuginfo-tests?  Is it actively supported?  How do
you run it?  It doesn't appear to be based on lit, any particular reason?
Why is it its own repo instead of being part of llvm repo?

I'd like improve this to support CodeView and PDB, such that it would only
run on Windows and only if a suitable debugger was found (probably
WinDbg).  WinDbg supports a JavaScript-based scripting model, similar to
how LLDB supports a Python based model, so my thoughts were to have a
lit-based runner that scans for .js files that contain a test script
alongside some source, then build the program, run it in WinDbg with some
script that does various things, and exits the debugger, moving on to the
next test.

Anything I should be aware of / careful of when messing around in here?
And any reason it can't be moved to llvm/tests and ported to lit?
