TestBuilds do not expire. TestCases, might. I believe that TestBuilds have a "CurrentMajor.CurrentMinor.(Current+1)-build" version, whereas the TestCases have a "CurrentMajor.CurrentMinor.51-build" version (anyone care to confirm that?). Slight difference, but you had me there for a moment.

I just noticed that in ticket #16028 (https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/16028) your reported VirtualBox version is 5.0.26, so naturally you were seeking the 5.0.27-... TestBuild. And those are not at all expired. They're non-existent. The links in the TestBuild page are pretty much ... wrong.

How about adding a link to the https://www.virtualbox.org/download/testcase/ directory directly, and be done with it? Something like http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/ . Simple, straightforward, no need to update the Wiki page every time. Just a thought...
