This is a nice idea but it has a few drawbacks:

there is still the package maintainer who is repsonsible for forwarding
packages ... so I don't see this danger.

2.coreutils-testsuite is not testing the *same* binaries which we
install finally in the distro. Bugs or inconsistencies in OSB or
rpm could cause that "coreutils" builds broken binaries
but "coreutils-testsuite" looks ok.

That's a valid point though ...

What I would really like is that project's like coreutils would have
a "make check*" target which runs tests against the installed

... it has been like that for quite a while now. I don't know what
was the motivation behind the split, but I can imagine that this speeded
up the build cycles on OBS dramatically.

Thus said, I'm not against removing 'coreutils-testsuite'. Maybe it'd
be an improvement if only the smaller (faster) 'make check' is run for
the coreutils package while it would run the slower 'make check-very-expensive'
tests in the coreutils-testsuite case.
