Subject: [boost] [build][testing] Tests naming in Jamfile
From: Mateusz Loskot (mateusz_at_[hidden])

I'm updating Jamfile-s of Boost.GIL and it made me wondering:

For example:

test-suite "boost-gil-test" :
    [ run promote_integral.cpp ]

Apart from replacing the deprecated test-suite with alias,
I wonder what is the recommended policy of naming the
test suites, are there any rules?

For example, should it be more or less hierarchical
or the name is completely local to/internal in a library
and library maintainers are free to name as they desire?

I could not find anything in the development guidelines
and the testing policy docs.

Best regards,
