I think the main issue is that Salsa admins are afraid about those CI
tests of all packages due to performance constraints.  We could enable
CI tests in inject-into-salsa-git or run a script on all our
repositories to switch this on - but we might break salsa when doing so.

You are perfectly right.  Currently routine-update is just doing the
preparation to switch on CI easily *if* we get the signal from salsa
admins that this can be done.  (At least this was my idea when adding

This is most probably scriptable - but salsa admins explicitly said
(I think in DebConf20 talk or whereever else) that they are afraid
about this.

Kind regards
