[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#672756: octave-pkg-dev: testsuite does not handle files under inst/private


I snipped away some information - we are talking about packages with
tests in the private/ subdirectory.

I looked at financial and I ponder its removal. It seems that both
Authors are inactive and fetch.m has an essentially failing test
commented out since 2008.
Running the tests in private/fetch_google.m gives another error.

My concerns are not about the errors, but rather about the package being
maintained upstream.
