Re: [gnome-desktop-testing] Mago discovery method + make check


This is caused by the test cases layout that is assumed by mago:

If they don't have an subdirectory for each application, then setting MAGO_PATH
to 'dirname $(pwd)' and application parameter to 'basename $(pwd)' should work.

However if the layout above no longer suites our needs, then we can indeed
discuss if it should be changed (this will entail changes in the directory
structure for the logs also).

Best regards,
