Hmm, good point, I will think about it ...

That is what my `tbot-denx` repo is supposed to be (DENX-Internal only):


However, it doesn't contain any testcases yet.  Additions via Pull-Request
are very welcome (board configs as well, please!).  I have some unpublished
changes to that repository though, which will be published with the new
release tomorrow.  If you wait until after that with writing testcases, you
can spare yourself from merge conflicts ...
