I'm now at erc Btw, it is a little bit
tricky to decide which is the recent version, because you have two lines
of patches: erc5.4.1.48598.* and erc*. The package manager
always offers me to upgrade to the most recent* version,
and I must pick then the most recent* version (hoping it is
the proper decision). It might be more obvious to me if you could offer
both erc-48598 and erc-49860 packages in parallel.

Indeed, test/Makefile fires an error then. I've pushed a fix to master,
it shall work now with the file name erc-d-tests.el.

Yes. Test data and test Elisp files belong to the test/ directory.

Where is this needed? I don't see any load of erc-scenarios-meta.el.

And even if you need it somewhere, I believe it belongs into the
resources/ subdirectory.

Looks OK to me except the location of erc-scenarios-meta.el.

Well, there seems to be a cut'n'waste error in erc-services-tests.el. See
this fix:

No need to sorry! That's what reviews are good for :-)
