Yeah, that happens a lot. piuparts can't know (or at least doesn't try;
anyone wanting to send an AI patch is welcome) which package it is that
actually fails, so if there's a package that lots of others depend on
(like xutils or the others), and that fails (and sometimes they fail
only when tested with packages that depend on them), there's a lot of
false positives. That's why logs are processed manually before bugs are

Sure, thanks.

Programming should be fun, otherwise you're doing something wrong.
