Package: src:matplotlib
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

One of my package relies on matplotlib.tests for its testsuite. However,
an attempt to do so results in the following error:

>>> import matplotlib.tests
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/matplotlib/tests/",
    line 18, in <module>
        'The baseline image directory does not exist. '
OSError: The baseline image directory does not exist. [...]

The issue is somwhat similar to #779847 but the latter was supposed to
be fixed in 1.5.x and the exception type changed from IOError to

Could you please investigate the issue.
