I will try to translate them to English and then I will create a tarball.

We do not like this idea. It is too dificult to have tests that are both
portable and complete. (E.g., testing comand-line options, environment
variables like LUA_PATH and LUA_INIT, submodules, C modules, not to
mention limitations in machine resources).  Moreover, it is quite common
for some tests to fail due to bugs in libc. A complete (hard) test suite
"too public" creates too much noise.

I guess our suite is quite "serious" already :)
