OK.

I personally prefer tight tests in this case, as the patch doing the
rephrase "sees" what changed by running the tests, and documents the
visible change by changing the expected in the tests scripts. But no
strong opinion here, I'd be fine with e.g.

test_i18ngrep "fatal: .* alias.br.*line 2 in .git/config" result
