[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#857805: shadow: please run the testsuite
lamby at debian.org
Wed Mar 15 10:40:57 UTC 2017
I notice that we aren't currently running shadow's testsuite as
part of the package build. This seems a little risky given it's
such a security-sensitive (!) package.
I did notice the following warning in tests/README:
This testsuite is NOT SECURE: it will temporarily change your
passwords file with known passwords.
You should run it on a chroot, or on a secured dedicated system.
... so it's fair enough that we are not running it as part of the
Debian package build. However, this seems like a perfect use-case
for ci.debian.net / autopkgtest.
