Bug#924854: mmdebstrap: flaky autopkgtest

Source: mmdebstrap
Version: 0.4.1-1
Severity: important
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-ci@lists.debian.org
User: debian-ci@lists.debian.org
Usertags: flaky

Dear maintainers,

Since the end of February the autopkgtest of mmdebstrap sometimes fails
in unstable and testing, while a retry not much later succeeds. Because
the unstable-to-testing migration software now blocks on regressions in
testing, flaky tests, i.e. tests that flip between passing and failing
without changes to the list of installed packages, are wasting peoples
time. Please either fix the test to be more robust, or mark this
particular test as "flaky".

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. Unfortunately,
the failure doesn't always seem to be on the same place.

More information about this bug and the reason for filing it can be found on
