W package-builds-dbg-and-dbgsym-variants

All reports of package-builds-dbg-and-dbgsym-variants for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package appears to build both -dbg and -dbgsym variants of a package. Only one package should contain the debug symbols

Usually the -dbg should be dropped in favour of the -dbgsym. However, in some cases (e.g. Python modules) the -dbg contains more than just the debug symbols. In these cases the -dbgsym should not be built.

Refer to the dh_strip(1) manual page and https://wiki.debian.org/AutomaticDebugPackages for details.
