your suggested approach seems to be feasible, although it covers only a fraction
of what I had in mind. Yet, it could be a good start, I guess...
But Cristian joins in here and I could imagine the same could be valid for Android:

Yep, I think so. That is why I voted for a real test *application* which can be
build and installed on any system, in order to have a reproducible testing
environment independent from OS and whether the test app runs on a regular
installation or a CI system.
As I’ve never coded a KF5 application myself and since I am swamped acting as a
half-manual CI system, I don’t see how I could code such a thingy in a short time.
I think this could also act as a good example-application for the KF5 framework…
Mario, there were efforts regarding example apps at Randa! Could this perhaps be
implemented by that same team? I think it would be worth to get such an app into
the examples, as it would demonstrate a lot concerning KF5’s ways of saving all
sorts of files for data, configs, apps, read-only, writable, etc.
