Bug Description

pycurl is in main, so is expected to meet https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuMainInclusionRequirements, including "If the package ships a test suite, and there is no obvious reason why it cannot work during build (e. g. it needs root privileges or network access), it should be run during package build, and a failing test suite should fail the build."

pycurl currently (7.19.3-0ubuntu3) does have a test suite that does run during the build, but the test suite fails and this does not fail the build.

pycurl now depends on python-bottle, which is in universe, but it could still have a dep8 test that runs this test suite. However, even with python-bottle installed, not all tests pass.

That's as far as I got during a pycurl merge, so I'll leave this bug here for another time.

I have 7.19.5-2ubuntu1 ready to go into Utopic as soon as the FFE is approved (LP: #1376736). Unfortunately, due to an upstream packaging bug, the test suite was not included in the tarball, and I elected not to re-add it in the Debian version (7.19.5-2). My plan is to re-enable it once upstream releases a new version, and exactly as you state, add a DEP-8 test that runs the test suite.
