Just because we don't have automated testing doesn't mean the code has
stopped working. You can say the same about pretty much every single
distro, since we don't have our CI running integration tests yet. This
is a gap I'd like to see us address, though it likely requires us to
get more hardware resource, since the current CI host is pretty fully
loaded just doing builds.
