Thanks for assembling this list.

I'd consider this a false positive since the package has a dedicated
test suite.  When adding "Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-python" you get
a lintian warning:

W: python-csb source: unnecessary-testsuite-autopkgtest-field
N:    You do not need to specify a Testsuite: autopkgtest field if a
N:    debian/tests/control file exists. It is automatically added by
N:    dpkg-source(1) since dpkg 1.17.1.
N:    Please remove this line from your debian/control file.
N:    Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
N:    Check: testsuite, Type: source

So before doing a MBF "Missing Testsuite: autopkgtest-pkg-python"
this should be checked as well.

Kind regards

       Andreas (just updated five other packages accordingly)
