Bonjour Cédric,

I am also a big fan of regression testing at build time, but indeed, it makes
build dependancies more complex.

I think that the way to go is to use frameworks like autopkgtest.  I hope that
in the future, our infrastructure will systematically run such tests on new
packages.  To help this happen, we need to provide packages that implement
auopkgtest tests.  How about using it in your case ?


Have a nice day,
