dpkg testsuite (again)

Hi all,

   As perhaps you already know, I've been working a little in a testsuite
framework for dpkg. It's maintained as an Arch branch, publicly available at
http://people.debian.org/~zoso/arch/2005-debian/dpkg/dpkg--test/ .

   I don't have a lot done, but I would like to discuss it before doing too
much, anyway. Now that we managed to get Sarge out of the door, I guess this
is a good time to send a reminder.

   The main idea is making an easy to use framework (by now, written in
DejaGNU/Tcl) that integrates unit testing (by now, done with "check") and
functional testing of dpkg and its scripts and related tools. Right now there
are only a couple of examples (both unit- and functional-), but I think the
idea is clear.

   Someone (doogie, I think) once told me that there were several people
interested in dpkg testing. Have anyone tried it? Do you have any questions,
concerns, etc?
