I suggested to add that line. Quoting from my mail in #900368:

- When building in the current sid, I get Lintian warnings about three files
  shipped in /usr/lib/python3.7/dist-packages/.

  That probably happens because of output of 2to3 is slightly different in
  Python 3.6 and 3.7 (e.g. files.items() vs. iter(files.items())), and
  dh_python3 does not remove the file if it does not match.

  I would recommend removing debian/python3-github/usr/lib/python3.* manually
  in debian/rules.

Normally files should be installed in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages
(not .../python3.x/...). But if there are mulitple supported Python 3 versions
and some installed files differ between these versions, dh_python3 can leave
some files in /usr/lib/python3.x/dist-packages, which causes Lintian warnings
and should be avoided.

Now that Python 3.6 is no longer supported (and there is only one supported
Python 3 version), that hack can be dropped.
