Hello Niko,

I have never cared or checked whether it needs a writeable $HOME. I
assumed autopkgtest was run on something approaching a "normal" system,
i.e. with existing and writeable $HOME.

Also I was not aware that writing to that directory and not
cleaning up was a bug. Is this documented, and if yes, where?

FWIW I checked both specification
or policy in vain.

Thanks, cu Andreas
