Nothing, Cask simply doesn’t do that.  It doesn’t make assumption about
the local layout of the source code tree, since that’d be too flaky for
more complex packages, e.g. consisting of different files in different 

However, you can tell erg-runner to additional files, e.g.

cask exec ert-runner -l ./m-buffer.el 

To make this permanent, add an „.ert-runner“ file to the root of your
source code tree, with the following contents:

-l ./m-buffer.el 

Please note that Cask is not part of GNU Emacs, nor in any way affiliated 
with it.  As such, this list is not the best place to ask questions about
Cask, since it’s not regularly monitored by us.  Please refer to the Github
issue tracker or to Cask’s own mailing list for questions.
