Good point. I’ve been calling the target that build the test “build-tests” which I’m not particularly fond of. “test-bundle” on the other hand seems to imply an actual bundling (zipping, tarring) of the files (and maybe that was what you were referring to?). The makesfiles today do not have logic for creating these bundles, even for the product. The closest you get for the product is “images” which will create an exploded bundle (what it looks like before you tar/zip it). This is also what I do for "build-tests”. Still would like a better name.
