Addition in lintian to warn about debian/pyversions file

2018-05-13 Thread Joseph Herlant
Hi guys,

FYI I am requesting a new lintian tag to warn about the presence of
the debian/pyversions file as it is supposed to be obsolete since
dh_python2 [1].

According to the policy[2], we are supposed to use the
X-Python3-Version field in debian/control to specify the version now.

Please let me know if that is an issue for you.

Bug report: #898592

Also, it's written in the python policy to do so:
"Another note: if there is a debian/pycompat file, you must launch
dh_python after dh_pysupport, but the recommended way is to remove
that file."

Checked in dh-python2 and 3 and I don't see how this could be an
issue. As Scott said, if that breaks any of the 18 packages, that
would probably be a bug or that the package needs to be updated to use
a supported build system.

 This is a pluin for the py.test Python testing framework.
 With this plugin a progress bar is displayed while tests are running
