Not sure what you mean by test suite, I've uploaded it to github ( 
https://github.com/tgaurnier/geany/), and would love for people to test 
it, it seems to be fairly bug free now, there's things I still want to 
fix, but when using correct QML syntax it seems to be pretty flawless 
now (at least from the testing I've done).

Could you maybe shoot me a link of one of the test suites from Colomban 
you're refering to?
