questions like "what file/directory do I put my tests in" helps us to
reduce static inertia.
- We seem to have started to write more tests.
So we don't have any formal ideas about this yet, but I suggest we
revisit the question when we have learned more about testing, and also
after we have settled the more logistical Q1 problem.
