The TAP protocol is both pretty simple and time tested. I'd suggest to adopt

For TAP, see also which comes
with its own test suite for Lua interpreters.

test framework?
Or at least a simple agreement on "returns 0 == success, returns '1' ==
failure", or something?

Some guidelines such as:
A single unit test should be fully independent and live in a single file
A unit test is responsible for setting up its environment and tearing it

I think a good start would be the list of things tested for if the test

the answers can go a long way.

I am happy to help transitioning the tests.

Likewise. I’d like to help where I can.

Same goes for me. How should we proceed, given that Mike's test suite
cannot be made public as-is due to license issues? Start collecting

Best regards,
