Because of the inherited Urgency: high, autopkgtest results are
irrelevant for git migration.

Good point. Let me consider that during prioritization of my next actions.

I manually just told autopkgtest to take two packages from unstable
instead of one. So you are saying that the current behavior is designed
behavior. Thinking about it I can see why you say that, but it is
annoying in the Debian and Ubuntu infrastructure while I see no benefit
from it for them. Maybe this should be optional then and be turned on
for Debian and Ubuntu?
