The test data isn't rebuilt automatically - it needs to be manually
updated.  The only thing which is automatically rebuilt is the
distribution tarballs on the snowball website.

I think I've updated the data in the past, which may be where the

I've checked these, and they look reasonable to my eyes, but it would
be good if someone who speaks German could check that they make sense,
