I have had various portability issues[1] with the above type of
construct. In general I now avoid VAR=`cd dir ; pwd` as a way to get
the directory. The above does not look too bad for this report but
let me suggest this instead:

  export REPO=$(pwd)/test-repos

I think it reads cleaner and avoids various issues.

[1] Think of what happens when CDPATH is set. Think of running on a
BSD amd system with /.automount as the real mount point. Things like
that.
