Aha, so non r-bioc-* packages are superficial at this moment.

I'll think about what this means for the Release Team. Normally when I
learn of packages that try to migrate to testing with superficial tests
not marked as such I would add a manual block. Maybe I'll see if I can
generate such a list for all autopkgtest-pkg-r using packages (without
bioc in the name).

Thanks for letting us know. And yes, please fix this. While typing this,
I have one suggestion, we should make autopkgtest-pkg-r skippable and
pkg-r-autopkgtest should exit 77 if there's no hook nor any tests to run
(and without bioc currently). The overall result of skipped tests is
equal to successful tests marked as superficial. I believe we
can/could/should very well do that now in the freeze, after we fix
autodep8. What do you think?
