Ah, thanks for pointing out. I asked Dave to put them back.

That's actually deliberate. This already the second case where our
tests were dropped by syncs, whereas it is very rare (and undesirable)
to deliberately remove tests from packages. Hence I'd rather let this
count as a failure and review it manually than silently removing

For source package renaming we'll just drop the job from jenkins,
that's no problem.
