Definitely not.  You should not even run that script *inside*
run-unit-tests.  Your script to fetch that data file has the only
purpose to *document* how that data file was obtained.  It is now
provided inside the debian/ dir and there is no point in re-getting it
over and over.  The run-unit-tests script should just refer to this date
file inside the file system.

Sorry if my initial hint might have been misleading.

Kind regards
