lintian.d.o is currently maintained by jeroen and me (kind of, it's
currently somewhat broken and I'm not yet able to find out exactly why,
but that's another story). But that code is really lintian specific.
Nevertheless, we're indeed currently working on such a framework as
you mention. On our list of tests to run are currently install tests
(with liw's piuparts), rebuild tests (with pbuilder I think) and
lintian (perhaps linda, too?). Adding new tests should be not a
great problem once we have the infrastructure up.
