Bug Description

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

As of March 29, 2017, this source package did not contain dep8 tests in
the current development release of Ubuntu, named Zesty. This was
determined by running `pull-lp-source krb5 zesty` and then
checking for the existence of 'debian/tests/' and
'debian/tests/control'.

Test automation is essential to higher levels of quality and confidence
in updates to packages. dep8 tests [1] specify how automatic testing can
be integrated into packages and then run by package maintainers before
new uploads.

This defect is to report the absence of these tests and to report the
opportunity as a potential item for development by both new and
experienced contributors.

Since this package is currently a sync from Debian, and I want their opinion on these tests first, I submitted an MP for Debian here: https://salsa.debian.org/debian/krb5/merge_requests/2

Hi.
For whatever reason I'm not getting mail when an MP is opened in the
krb5 gitlab.
In general, i think Debian uses its BTS as the todo system of record
moreso than gitlab MPs. I know for myself and I suspect a lot of other
debian developers, a wishlist bug against a package would be the best
way for me to consider a patch.

That said, since I'm also looking at launchpad, I've reviewed the MP.

Other than the license question I raised there, I think this is a great
thing to include.
I've been swamped by non-Debian life events, but I'm mostly through that
and will dedicate a day to catching up on Debian in the next couple of
weeks.
