tests: use $TEST_DIRECTORY to refer to the t/ directory
Many test scripts assumed that they will start in a 'trash' subdirectory that is a single level down from the t/ directory, and referred to their test vector files by asking for files like "../t9999/expect". This will break if we move the 'trash' subdirectory elsewhere. To solve this, we earlier introduced "$TEST_DIRECTORY" so that they can refer to t/ directory reliably. This finally makes all the tests use it to refer to the outside environment. With this patch, and a one-liner not included here (because it would contradict with what Dscho really wants to do): | diff --git a/t/ b/t/ | index 70ea7e0..60e69e4 100644 | --- a/t/ | +++ b/t/ | @@ -485,7 +485,7 @@ fi | . ../GIT-BUILD-OPTIONS | | # Test repository | -test="trash directory" | +test="trash directory/another level/yet another" | rm -fr "$test" || { | trap - exit | echo >&5 "FATAL: Cannot prepare test area" all the tests still pass, but we would want extra sets of eyeballs on this type of change to really make sure.
