Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.77
Severity: wishlist


Should we warn about "old" X-Python3-Version fields? For example, I
just saw a new package from a sponsee with:

  X-Python3-Version: >= 3.2

This seems a little silly given that 3.2 is only in wheezy, jessie has
3.4 and stretch has 3.5.

If the idea is fundamentally sound, we could even avoid most of the
"What versions should we I: or P: at..." bikeshedding by having an
"ancient" and "old" tags with differing severities.  :)


Best wishes,
