The distribution source tarball for poppler does not include the files needed

out of CVS.
When building the source tarball for distribution, can you also provide a
tarball (e.g. poppler-test-0.5.3.tar.gz) of the test module (i.e. the stuff
reachable via "cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/poppler co
Is there any reason that just checking it out of cvs isn't good enough?

Checking it out of CVS doesn't necessarily guarantee to give you the test data
associated with a particular version.
You could just tag the test files the same as the release, I suppose, but you
could make the same argument for the release itself - the source tarball is
redundant in the same way a test-data tarball would be.
We are not going to release the test data.
