I have a question about test/hotspot layout. when we started jep 281, we deliberately selected not to use harness/framework names in directory and the proposed the following layout for hotspot tests was
> For clarity the tests should not be mixed with existing jtreg tests; instead, they should be split in two directories. We propose to split the current jdk9/hotspot/test directory into two subdirectories:
> • jdk9/hotspot/test/java
> • jdk9/hotspot/test/native
now the consolidated repo has test/hotspot/jtreg and test/hotspot/gtest and directories. hence I'm wondering why you have renamed the directories, there were any problems w/ the originally proposed layout?
