Package: python3-grpcio Version: 1.15.0-1 Severity: normal The GRPC github project managed by Google (https://github.com/grpc/grpc) includes support for many languages including Python. Tarballs generated from that project include support for all those languages and are linked from the official page at https://packages.grpc.io/ . This tarball is packaged as the "grpc" Debian source package, though it hasn't seen a new upload to unstable in over a year.
The grpcio tarball available from https://pypi.org/project/grpcio/ is created from the same source, but has the non-Python bits removed (and includes a few extras, like a copy of zlib/c-ares/openssl). Two bugs (https://bugs.debian.org/871442 and https://bugs.debian.org/908873 ) ask for Python support to be enabled on the grpc source package. I'd guess they were asking for Python 2 bindings, but they might also be interested in the Python 3 bindings provided by this package. I'm not aware of any actual problems caused by the current situation, but packaging the same source twice is unusual.
