YES #!/usr/bin/python2

NO  #!/usr/bin/env python2

Please read Debian Python policy.
4.1. Interpreter directive (“Shebang”)

Executables written for interpretation by Python must use an appropraite
interpreter directive, or “shebang”, as the first line of the program.
This line should be of the form #!interpreter_location. See Section
2.4.1, “Interpreter Name” for the interpreter name to use.

As noted in Section 2.4.2, “Interpreter Location”, the form
#!/usr/bin/env interpreter_name is deprecated.

..... I see typo. s/appropraite/appropriate/
