Hello Tim,

Debian's GnuTLS packages are normally based on release tarballs. I have occasionally uploaded GIT snapshots to experimental to get some pre-release testing but in that case I did not simply tar up the git repo but ran "make dist" on the checkout. So even in that case we were not running the CI testsuite but the release-tarball machinery.

(The Debian packaging itself is also kept in a GIT repository but that is unrelated.)
