I'm using nvchecker which is automatically triggered on tty login.

I'm also helping out in the DevOps team. E.g. I participated in the latest Rollout of Keycloak and Gitlab.
I'll probably also help out when we will migrate our bugs at some point in the future.
Looking forward to increase my engagement at DevOps in the future.

Not yet, but I'll have a look at shfmt. Honestly I haven't had the idea to use a formatting tool yet. 
But I'm using aurpublish to ensure .SRCINFO and checksum consistency.

I'm using most of the packages myself, so I test them locally. The builds are tested with our devtools package
in systemd-nspawn (for missing deps etc.).
Docker seems to be a nice idea to improve this in the future :)
