For the record, I don't believe the SRU team has ever asked for pre-upload
autopkgtests as a condition of an MRE.

Given the frequency with which autopkgtest infrastructure gets overloaded, I
generally take the view that ppa autopkgtest runs should be kept to a
minimum because the results don't transfer to the main archive and all have
to be run again, and it's the second run that actually matters for
