Bug#768943: qa.debian.org: Jenkins installation tests could try different partitioning schemes

Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: wishlist


after reading #768644 (that apparemntyl is caused by local
misconfiguration, but still), it occurred to me that it would be good
to automatically detect issues related to non-default
partitioning schemes.

An automated test could:

1. installs a clean testing and/or sid system
2. during installation, picks one of the automated partitioning
   schemes; the test matrix shall be expanded on that axis
3. boots the resulting system
4. checks that the system is fully booted and all services correctly
   started (e.g. with `systemctl is-system-running')

To which Holger replied (privately, but allowing me to quote his

Hence filing this bug report so this idea is not forgotten.
