Thanks for uploading the package.

Actually we already have a very rough testsuite, which attempts a few  
runs of Dynare using a set of examples. However the testsuite does not  
necessarily fails upon error, but provides some meaningful output.  
Does this fit the requirements for a package testsuite? If not, what  
should be modified?

Anyways, we need to improve upon our testsuite. In particular, we need  
to add unit tests for critical components of Dynare.
