Well, one did not have to fetch them from anywhere, they were already
there.  But yes, working on a smaller synthetic set of RPMs.

OK.

I've found it tricky to debug failing tests without this.

iproute-5.2.0-1.fc30.x86_64

OK, because of %check in the RPM?

There is no 100%-probable way of assigning a port number ahead of
time.  Would you like an iteration limit / abort for that unlikely
situation?

The set -e should nuke the test run.

OK, will try that.

OK.

This one may not be needed.

Well, here's the problem.  We want to assert that the scan was
successful.  We can't just reject a 404 response because the scan may
not have finished yet.  So we'd have to race/loop/poll.  But then we'd
need a timeout (how long?).  It turns out to be the same thing, just
more complicated.

To give extra time for scanning RPMs.

Yes, again, same reasons as above.  You can either have a timeout-poll
loop, or a time sleep and a single judgement poll.

I see the man page doesn't specifically disclose the interpretation of
zero.  A "no retention of prior results" purpose is useful, and is
consistent with 0 as per the text.  A "retain forever" setting would
have to be a different value.
