Lintian Reports

W no-op-testsuite

All reports of no-op-testsuite for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package declares a single autopkgtest which will always pass as it uses a "no-op" command such as /bin/true.

As the results of autopkgtests influence migration from unstable to testing this is undesirable and could be even considered an unfair or unwarranted "advantage". Installability of packages is better tested with piuparts which is also used to influence testing migration.

Please update your autopkgtest to actually test the binary package(s) when installed.

Refer to for details.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
