I started merging this and got up to patch 6/7, then stopped. Some comments below.

The first patch adds a hardcoded "output/" to some file names, the second one
changes that into a define and the third one completely undoes the first patch
and moves the addition of the "output/"-prefix from the define into the code.

I don't see why this is spread over three different commits. I would just squash
them together into a single one (which then would be about as large as each of
the individual commits, so splitting this up doesn't produce smaller patches).

It just seems like these are fixup commits which correct errors from the earlier

Why does this copy&paste _cairo_test_mkdir() to cairo_test_mkdir()? Wouldn't it
be enough to rename _cairo_test_mkdir() and make it non-static (and adding it to

I don't know what I should say. I read the description, then looked at the diff
and afterward had to read the description again. This is the point were I
stopped committing the patches, because this makes no sense at all.

The diff should be squashed into the previous commit and the change described,
if needed, should be implemented.

This could get "test, svg:" instead of just "test". Besides that, dunno. Never
looked closely at how SVG does things.


Sorry for complaining again (and sorry for being awfully slow for looking at
things! If you want to, feel free to just do something about patch 6/7 and
ignore the rest of my complaints, those are not that important).
