This looks fine. Keep in mind that each test will be multiplied into 5
tests with the 5 values you have here, so we always want to make sure
we are sticking with the most common subdirectories for a product

You can validate the syntax of your tests with the -dbcheck option
(this will check the main tests as well as the user supplied
databases). You can email any checks directly to me and/or the mailing
