W package-contains-python-coverage-file

All reports of package-contains-python-coverage-file for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

The package contains a file that looks like output from the Python tool. These are generated by python{,3}-coverage during a test run, noting which parts of the code have been executed. They can then be subsequently analyzed to identify code that could have been executed but was not.

As they are unlikely to be of utility to end-users, these files should not be shipped in the final binary package.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb
