I've now noticed that CI tests are gone from the tarball that are used
in Debian CI ( https://ci.debian.net/packages/g/gnutls28/unstable/amd64/
)  and Ubuntu Autopkgtest frameworks (
http://autopkgtest.ubuntu.com/packages/gnutls28 )

The below commit has removed them:

    tests/suite: do not include scripts into dist

However, in Debian & Ubuntu these tests are triggered whenever gnutls
or its reverse-dependencies are changed to e.g. prevent a broken
OpenSSL getting released in Debian/Ubuntu if gnutls cannot connect to
it anymore.

In Debian these tests are performed on amd64, in Ubuntu these tests
are performed on amd64/i386/s390x/ppc64el/armhf/arm64 giving a much
wider architecture coverage that the current upstream CI is

Furthermore this gating is not only done for the Development releases
of Debian/Ubuntu, but for stable release updates & security uploads.

Can you please resurrect these scripts, and re-release
tarball with them included?

These tests have caught bugs in raising seclevel to 2 in OpenSSL in
ubuntu, hence I was motivated to improve them further in
