Bug#966333: reprotest: Tests not run during build and fail with python 3.8

Package: reprotest
Severity: normal
Version: 0.7.8

The test suite parts called by "tox" are not run, as it tries to use
python 3.6, which was not present since before buster release:

   SKIPPED:  py36: InterpreterNotFound: python3.6
     congratulations :)

The congratulations seem a bit premature. :)

I updated the configuration to run using python 3.8, but many
non-deterministic test suite failures ensued, so reverted before the
last upload.

We should probably get the test suite running and passing again. :)

We might also want to disable skip_missing_interpreters, to avoid this
happening again without noticing...

live well,
