New "tests" namespace to share test code

Hi!

While working on adding CI tests [0] using the Standard Test
Interface a need arose to have a shared git repository where tests
could be stored:

* A large number of test files makes a dist-git repository more
difficult to maintain

* Tests might follow a different branching pattern than the
dist-git repo, leading to code duplication

* Shared maintenance for tests sometimes benefits from different
access levels than the release dist-git repository

The plan is to create a new “tests” namespace in Fedora git/pagure
dedicated to storing the shared test code.
