We never refer to our software as "open source"
but a lot of your suggestions seem good to me.

Here are some specific comments:

We do have issue trackers that we use.

We have a program to do this.  It's called LibreJS.
You install it in your browser, and you can check a site
all by yourself.  You can even check pages that are not
yet posted on a site, or not publicly accessible.

How would an "online testing tool" be different from this?
And why would it be better?

I think the reason we encourage webmasters to put the license and
source pointer directly in the program is that this makes it easier
for people looking at the page to find the source code.   Does anyone
recall the discussion about this?
