Hello everybody,

after a quick discussion with Andrew Mitchell this morning, I decided to
put together (an admittedly primitive version of) arb-lint. The idea is
to put tests into it, so we can massage our collective knowledge of apps
into a tool.

The way it works is simple:
daniel at daydream:~$ cd
daniel at daydream:~$ bzr branch lp:arb-lint
Branched 4 revisions.
daniel at daydream:~$ cd cooking-lens/
daniel at daydream:~/cooking-lens$ bzr bd
daniel at daydream:~/cooking-lens$ ~/arb-lint/arb-lint
E: This package contains translations, which are not shipped in /opt.
   This issue needs to be fixed. Look at XXX for an example how do fix
daniel at daydream:~/cooking-lens$

You can pass a different directory with the built packages to arb-lint
as well, ie: ~/pbuilder/precise_result/, etc.

Currently it only contains very very few tests and, worse, only a few
pointers towards examples of fixes we already worked on, but I hope we
can fix these problems together.
