Some upstreams maintain there conda recipes, with these nice badges whcih remind them that it doe not work, or that it work.
It would be great if we could have this in Debian, in order to let the upstream get use to the Debian packaging and let them target our distributions.
so maybe the packaging should be as simple as droping a debian-ci file into the upstream source and our salsa pipeline could start running its pipeline.
