### When posting an HTML version in the test folder for an OR it
should be in the Owner Reviews subfolder and not the Tests subfolder
(which is used for testing uploads for gear undergoing a test series).

### Considering not much thought is given to this in the absence of
having one, what use other than the obvious is it good for? Why does
