Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

P old-python-version-field

The specified Python-Version or Python3-Version field is used to specify the version(s) of Python the package supports. However, the associated Python version is satisfied by the current "stable" distribution of Debian and may be unnecessary.

Please remove or update the reference. This warning should be ignored if you wish to support "sloppy" backports. If removing, please also check for the use of py3versions -r in debian/rules, and debian/tests/. Without an operative Python3-Version field py3versions will fall back to all supported versions which may not be appropriate.

Refer to Debian Python Policy section 3.4 (Specifying Supported Versions) for details.
