<!nocheck> meaning in Build-Depends
Trying to understand what exactly
<!nocheck> does next to a package in build-depends (for example, Perl). Debian Wiki says:
Terms can be negated by using an exclamation mark as a prefix
<!nocheck> is the negation of
<nocheck>. (But where is the default value specified?)
No test suite should be run, and build dependencies used only for that purpose should be ignored. Builds that set this profile must also add nocheck to DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
- To what test suite does it refer? I suppose it is not the source package's, because it wouldn't make sense for each individual dependency to have a chance block that.
- And if build dependencies used only for that purpose would be ignored, why would they be listed anyway?
