Bug Description

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

As of April 3, 2017, this source package did not contain package tests
in the current development release of Ubuntu, named Zesty. This was
determined by running `pull-lp-source pax zesty` and then
checking for the existence of 'debian/tests/' and
'debian/tests/control'. The package was also checked for 1) a test suite
declaration in the debian/control file, 2) any 'test', 'tests',
'testsuite', or 'test-suite' directories, 3) go tests (if applicable),
and 4) a test suite declared in a setup.py (if applicable).

If you feel this report is incorrect (e.g. this is a library or a source
only package) or the check above missed some other package level test
please reply explaining why and mark this bug as 'invalid'.

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.

Thanks!
