Re: Bug#865552: libbpp-phyl FTBFS with test failures

Hi Andreas,

I have committed another fix, which I hope will improve the two failing tests. Two questions:
- How can I initiate the compilation on all architectures in order to see the effect of my changes? Is it automatically started when the version number increases?
- When I make a change, am I allowed to increase the version number and update the changelog (using dch -i), or is it better that I notify you and you perform some check and then update the changelog?

Best regards,

It would be very sensible to make this at least a non-failing test if it
bears the chance to fail.

Me neither.  Perhaps there is a chance to consult

Kind regards
