Question about testing newly updated core packages

Hi folks,
I hope that all is doing well, and kudos for Arch based distrib!
I was wondering how the testing was made, once some core packages/ system components were updated and released for release update.

Given that this system constantly evolves, are there some complete framework of non regression testing when developers submit new changes? How does a new package change can be tested with "current snapshot of existing packages up to date to now"?

I am not sure I am clearly expressing what I am wondering, but maybe some of you have some answer elements?
Thanks and have a nice day.

Re: Question about testing newly updated core packages

Thanks, this is very interesting. There are some general guidelines and the testing seems quite manual. I was wondering if there were some kind of non-regression frameworks, or automatic builds of testing scenarios etc.
