Package: autopkgtest
Version: 2.11
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

I want to write a dep8 test for python-diskimage-builder. The test
should do something like this:

1) Create a qemu image (with: disk-image-create -a amd64 -u -o debian-amd64 vm debian)
2) Boot the image with qemu
3) Try to login with ssh

For the first step, disk-image-create uses debootstrap which needs
access to a Debian mirror but during the tests I can not assume to have
internet access. So I need a mirror which I can use for the tests.

I guess other packages (ie debootstrap, openstack-debian-images)
need this as well to write dep8 tests.
