Are you sure this is automatic? I don't think autopkgtest failure is considered 
serious bug where as FTBFS is serious. tests during build helps find problems 
in archive wide rebuilds, which is very common.

I don't think that is the right way to approach team maintained packages. If we 
are looking at "my package" and "your package" inside the team, that defeats 
the purpose of team maintenance. Instead we should be setting standards for the 
whole team and document it as team policy.

If you think this is better way of enabling tests, lets do it across all team 
maintained packages.
