No, that doesn't help anything, as the current situation already achieves the same thing. We are on the verge of enabling autopkgtest influence on unstable-to-testing migration and only a working autopkgtest changes anything there. Having glibc autopkgtest appears to me like a very-nice-to-have. Do you know why the autopkgtest runs so long? As Antonio mentioned in other similar bug reports, the time out only counts for individual test cases, so if you can break down the autopkgtest into smaller fragments, the time out may not be an issue. I haven't checked if glibc does, but remember that the idea is to test as-installed packages, so rebuilding should be avoided unless needed for the test itself. Even then, when test need binaries/artifacts that aren't build by default, one could create a binary package containing these artifacts in the regular build and depend on it while autopkgtesting. E.g. MariaDB/MySQL do that. Paul
