tests and mysql-test sub directories

Recently I’ve been making more modifications to the MySQL source. Part of making modifications is testing them. For years I’ve been curious why there are both tests and mysql-test sub directories in the source tarballs. Arjen Lentz tells me that tests is old and that mysql-test is the current testing framework. This makes sense since the manual testing pages are all about mysql-test.

Are there plans to clean up the remnants of the old testing framework? What else is there in the tarball that’s outdated and needs to be removed?
