If you look at the log,
you can see that pytest-with-recommends works, because it installs ocaml-nox,
while pytest doesn't...
look at debian/tests/control
Depends: diffoscope, python3-pytest, file, python3-tlsh
I would expect either:
1) ocaml-nox to become a runtime dependency for pytest test
2) test being skipped when ocaml-nox is not installed
3) ocaml-nox become a runtime dependency of diffoscope.
I don't really know which one is better, I think 2),
but since it requires code modifications, I went for 1) in Ubuntu
(lets see how it goes)
