i would like to propose a project to make sure our teams (DPMT/PAPT)
repos are using pristine-tar properly.

The checks i have in mind for now, are:

* pristine-tar branch must exist, if not -> it's a bug
* pristine-tar + upstream branch must produce the same tarball as
downloaded from the archive, if not -> it's a bug
* bonus point: fix the repo if it doesn't generate the right tarball
and or the branch is missing.
* bonus point: make this into a service that runs regularly (not
strictly necessary to be limited to us)

i guess we should have a brief discussion about additional checks
and/or procedures before "assigning" it to a volunteer. let's say up
to 2 weeks of discussion, and during the same period volunteers can
nominate themselves.

I marked this project as newcomers as it doesn't require to be a DD/DM
to work on it, you just need a salsa account and access to our teams.
a handy tool to retrieve all our repos is at


that contains a config file for `mr` and a `checkout` script to fetch
the repos registered in that config file.

Please feel free to discuss this project now :)
