The prerelease does a lot more than the debbuilds.  It is doing the same as
a devel job does, building and testing from source.  And afterwords it
builds and tests from source all packages which depend on the requested
package.  There's another test we could run which would actually test the
debbuild process, but the debbuild process does not install the tests so
you cannot run the tests after installing the debs which is not as helpful.

It's relatively simple to test the debian build process.  Checkout the
branch specific to your current platform in the gbp.  Make sure you have
installed all the dependencies listed in the debian/control file.  And call
dpkg-buildpackage with -uc -us (to skip signing).  The deb files and
.changes will pop out in the directory above.

git checkout debian/ros-hydro-camera1394_1.9.1-0_precise
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
