Hm, ripping it out entirely seems suboptimal, i'd love to be able to find and fix a bunch of these. What if the tag didn't trigger if there was only one command in override_dh_auto_test, and it started with either "dh_auto_test " or with ": "? i think that would avoid most of the important false-positives, and the tag could provide guidance for folks who were doing 'echo "Not running"' to use ': Not running' instead. Seems a shame to lose a bunch of good catches if we can prune down the false-positives. And even if this ends up missing some true positives, it would be a net win to catch the packages that *do* fail to check DEB_BUILD_PROFILES. --dkg
