piuparts tests that .deb packages (as used by Debian) handle
installation, upgrading, and removal correctly. It does this by
creating a minimal Debian installation in a chroot, and installing,
upgrading, and removing packages in that environment, and comparing the
state of the directory tree before and after. piuparts reports any
files that have been added, removed, or modified during this process.
piuparts is meant as a quality assurance tool for people who create .deb
packages to test them before they upload them to the Debian package archive.
