[MediaWiki-l] Missing tests/ directory in 1.23.1-5

I think not including the tests/ directory is wrong. Not only is the release incomplete, it is inconsistent -- there is code that breaks when run (references to files that do not exist.) In my opinion, a robust open source software package such as MediaWiki should be proud to ship its unit-tests. The 4MB of tests don't significantly contribute to the size of the release (some 80MB+.)

Now, to reconstruct the tests, not only do I have to go dig up the release branch, but REL1_23 doesn't contain the standard extensions (or their tests.) Now I have manually hunt down each extension and copy, find the appropriate branch, and copy it's tests/ directory over. All just to run the normal test-suite.

This needs to cross referenced to recent patches, perhaps?

In particular patches to create 1.23.2 and 1.23.3?
