According to the Contents file, bzr-git ships a test suite for the
autopkgtest testing framework [1]. Thanks a bunch for that, test suites
are a great way to improve Debian quality!

However, the presence of test suites in packages should be easily
discoverable, to allow test runners to choose packages and run their
test suites.  According to the autopkgtest specification [2], packages
shipping autopkgtest tests should declare that fact with the following
header in debian/control *source stanza*:

  XS-Testsuite: autopkgtest

bzr-git seems to lack such a header.
Can you please add it?

If you'd like to compare with existing packages in the archive that
declare their autopkgtest tests using the appropriate header, please
have a look at packages such as postgresql-common, tabix, and upower.

Thanks for considering,
