Deployment testing tool
Imho it would be great to be able to test deployment of the packages, when a distribution is cooked, before any RC is released.
The idea is to take a list of known software (end-user installed software, such as vlc, firefox, mplayer, etc.) and the list of the software present in repositories, intersect them, perform install (apk add) of those software, and return errors.
That tool would be useful to spot dependencies errors. It can also be extended to test that the software behaves correctly, to prevent any broken binary to be distributed in packages (like mplayer has been for some time on @edge).
