I can confirm that the test works for me (now since I'm able to build
the package - thanks to Aaron for the quick response).
Thanks a lot for helping me out with this project! I saw your messages to Aaron and it was a relief for me that there was a "real" problem to build the package. I had it too, but thought, this was with updating package dependencies on my computer..

I noticed that you pushed a commit featuring the copyright information
of the test data. Do you consider the package ready for upload now or
are you busy to enhance the test? From my point of view an upload with
the current status would be fine but I'm waiting for your OK for the
upload. In any case I added a closes: #879619 (which should mark the
bug "pending upload" if the hook on Salsa works properly which I hereby
want to test).
Sorry, but yes, I had no time to enhance the test by this evening. The package has more commands to test and I need to figure out how. I will be able to finish it no later than tomorrow's evening. I will let you know once it will be done.
