From my understanding (I have not tried, just looked at the code), archivebot.py allows a timestamp to be None.
See def should_be_archived().
In that case the thread is not added to the list of threads to be archived but it is left on the talk page.
So technically it is not 100% correct to test for a timestamp to be mandatory on the talkpage itself, but only on the threads to be archived.

After all, handling the unsigned case is still TODO in the script.

I think this proposal above by JVB sounds reasonable:
Or maybe the unit test could allow unsigned sections to be added to
the talk page.
i.e. to allow also None as test result in line 63 of archivebot_test.py

Sorry for doing that. I had to do it but I didn't have time to check
archivebot.py (which is a huge code) and find best fix for it but
builds were failing and we were fixing them one by one.

Anyone interested in fixing archivebot.py bug?
