The tests are expected to be supplied in the corresponding Debian source package. See autopkgtest(1) and /usr/share/doc/autopkgtest. Depending on which virtualization server you want to use, you need to install additional packages (schroot, lxc, lxd, or qemu-system) For generating tests of well-known source packages such as Perl and Ruby libraries you should install the autodep8 package.
