Hi Utkarsh,

Nice! Thanks a lot for the pointer.

I very much agree with you that the debate has to be emptied from
emotions if possible. My goal has never been to point finger at anyone,
but try to fix a reoccurring situation which I would like to avoid.

Running the script shows that 279 reverse (build?) dependencies are
affected by mock. This clearly isn't something one wants to run on a
personal computer, and even less a test which one wants to run sequentially.

Has any thought went into having some kind of runners running on a cloud
to run these tests, and maybe plug this into Salsa's CI to run it

I'd very much would love to set this up, at least as a first
experimentation on a bunch of package of the DPMT.

Your thoughts?
