[PATCH] Prevent t6000 series from dropping useless sed.script in t/
The Makefile in the test suite directory considers any file matching t[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]-*.sh as the top-level test script to be executed. Unfortunately this was not documented, and the common test library, t6000-lib.sh was named to match that pattern. This caused t6000-lib.sh to be called from Makefile as the top-level program, causing it to leave t/sed.script file behind. Rename it to t6000lib.sh to prevent this, and document the naming convention a bit more clearly. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>

+If you create files under t/ directory (i.e. here) that is not
+the top-level test script, never name the file to match the above

+file, similar to test-lib.sh, because such a library file may
+not be suitable for standalone execution.
