I can now confirm this difference.

The original described problem was that Debhelper was reading the
package control stanza's “Depends” field in the source package:

    Depends: ${python3:Depends}, ${misc:Depends}

and incorrectly expanding its “python3:Depends” placeholder to an
empty dependency list in the binary package:


When I change the ‘dh_python3’ arguments as Unit 193 describes, the
resulting “Depends” field in the binary package is:

    Depends: python3-click (>= 7.0), python3-ipy,
        python3-pkg-resources, python3-requests, python3-yaml,

Unit 193, can you confirm that is correct to resolve this bug?
