Comment in `debian/rules' would be nice.
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. -- Dmitry Shachnev
