One thing I have continued to campaign for (and I'm aware that not everyone
completely agrees) is that oe-selftest should be able to be run with people's
own configurations, we shouldn't necessarily assume that it's only our default
being tested - that way we maximise oe-selftest's utility and audience. Of
course there's a limit to that, if someone's esoteric configuration breaks it
they get to keep the pieces - but this will definitely break with anyone's
custom configuration, esoteric or otherwise.

I do agree with this. We've had this exact conversation with Ross a few weeks back, and he promised to fix the test so that it's limited to recipes in oe-core. Take me re-sending the patch as a gentle reminder for that. :)

By all means let's have a script that does this - it's even trivial to write one
with tinfoil.

No manual scripts (that no one except me even knows about) please. I really do want to automate this, and have it run regularly on the autobuilder. Otherwise, one can just issue:

bitbake -c checkpkg world && grep -v @ tmp/log/checkpkg.csv
