For me the question is not about "do we need a test framework" but "how do we do nightly tests properly". The current approach of just running it on Murdock has a lot of drawbacks -- not to mention that it is somewhat of a break of separations of concerns -- and going for an industry standard solution (whatever it may be) would not be a bad approach.

I mentioned that in my [assessment](https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/issues/10241#issuecomment-441254895): A solid test framework should be able such a case. In the case of robot framework I see a possibility for that. On the flip-side (the current approach): just executing anything executable in a certain directory seems somewhat dangerous to me (I'm already facing problems on my local machine with that approach whenever Vim or Git create a temporary copy of files in `tests/*/tests/`).
