britney: triggers tests even when all tests are removed; potentially causing autodep8 to be called

Hi Eriberto,

Thanks for talking about the issues you have, I could not have guessed.

This is not an issue with debci, as that just runs tests on behalf of
other entities. The culprit here is britney, the migration software of
the release team, hence filing a bug against it. The problem is that the
migration software *seems* (I haven't checked properly yet) to trigger
even in the case that all tests are removed. Because autopkgtest (the
software) is by default configured to try and call autodep8 if no tests
are found, you package was tested with tests from autodep8, while in
your case that is inappropriate as they fail. You have no way of telling
the infrastructure that. As britney considering neutral-to-fail a
regression your package is flagged as such. I see that's nothing you can
solve so I'll ignore the failure.
