A clarification: no need for a core-dev/MOTU if you have upload rights
for that package in Ubuntu. In that case you can trigger the test
yourself. The ubuntu-upload-permission tool in ubuntu-dev-tools is
handy to check whether you are allowed to upload (and therefore to
trigger tests for) a given source package.
