Since Debian LTS and ELTS changed its policy to use Salsa a few months
back, I have been using the CI features of salsa to perform extra QA
before uploads; as in, I do not upload until it is all green there
as well. I'm now doing the same with my "own" packages.

Can you briefly clarify what this reference to RELEASE refers to? I
initially thought it was something specific to MariaDB, but your
reference to Lintian suggests otherwise. Is it the:
