Visibility: info

The debian/rules file for this package has an override_dh_auto_test target that does not appear to check DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS against nocheck.

As this check is not automatically performed by debhelper(1), the specified testsuite is run regardless of another maintainer using the nocheck build option.

Please add a check such as:

override_dh_auto_test: ifeq (,$(filter nocheck,$(DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS))) ./run-upstream-testsuite endif

Lintian will ignore comments and other lines such as:

# Disabled : Disabled echo "Disabled" mkdir foo/ ENV=var dh_auto_test -- ARG=value

This check is not required in Debhelper compat level 13 or greater (see Bug#568897).
