A subset of the reports of testsuite-autopkgtest-missing for the archive. Unfortunately the full list is too long, so only 1024 instances are listed on this page. At most 3 tags are shown per package. If you need the full list of tags, please download the lintian.log.gz file and extract the data you need.
The extended description of this tag is:
This package does not declare a test suite.
Having a test suite aids with automated quality assurance of the archive outside of your package. For example, if your package has a test suite it is possible to re-run that test suite when any of your package's dependencies have a new version and check whether that update causes problems for your package.
In addition, since May 2018 such tests now influence migration from unstable to testing:https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2018/05/msg00001.html
Please add a debian/tests/control file to your package to declare a testsuite, but please make sure to only add autopkgtests if they provide meaningful coverage of your package.
Refer to https://ci.debian.net/doc/ for details.
