By the way, :fail_on_failre is true by default, so you don't need to
specify this unless you want to set it to false.

Hooking into the main project definition is the right approach since it
implicitly depends on sub-projects.

Instead of enhancing the test task, use the build task.

build do
  # whatever you want

The build task depends on the test (see default dependencies
so it will only be run if all the tests pass.
