For the record, this is what the testthat paper in the R Journal says:
"[...] I recommend storing your tests in inst/tests/ (so users also
have access to them), then including one file in tests/ that runs all

this easy. [...] This setup has the additional advantage that users
can make sure your package works correctly in their run-time
