Great news. Congratulations...

Yes, this is the right way. In fact the best naming convention will be
to use the same core/tests/...subdirs... names. Each group of
unit-tests hosted in a same directory must point to a data subdir
hosted in a similar hierarchy. Like this, this will be very easy to
found which data files is used for a specific unit test.

We have the metadataengine unit-tests with image test files ready to
migrate to the new data repository for ex.


I seen the README updated too. Thanks.

Where are the CMake rules to checkout the unit tests data repository ?

It can be a good idea to patch the README to explain this
particularity of gitlab CI.
