E depends-on-python-minimal

All reports of depends-on-python-minimal for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The python-minimal package (and versioned variants thereof) exists only to possibly become an Essential package. Depending on it is always an error since it should never be installed without python. If it becomes Essential, there is no need to depend on it, and until then, packages that require Python must depend on python.

Severity: important, Certainty: certain

Check: fields/package-relations, Type: binary, udeb, source

Emitted (non-overridden): 0, overridden: 1, total: 1

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
