I ran the whole batch again yesterday. As usual the logs are on
As expected there's quite a bunch of packages with test.pl only. Of
those, 89 succeed:
the others fail.
With the new pkg-perl-autopkgtest 0.16 there are 37 new successes, but
also 32 regressions, i. e. these passed earlier and now fail:
I think these new failures deserve a closer look. Some of them might
be intentional (like, we missed a real failure before), some might
also be a regression in pkg-perl-autopkgtest, and some an incomplete
fix in the latter. E. g. the first failure:
In the September 11 run it still looked like
t/00-compile.t ............ skipped: no tests to run
and now it's apparently missing some dependency. I haven't checked in
detail, but it might be fallout from the "needs-recommends" change?

Yes, I agree. So far I kept perl.txt up to date with new
pkg-perl-autopkgtest versions, so at no point there should be any new
failures. (I'm sure there will be a handful due to flaky tests, timing
