W package-contains-python-dot-directory

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

The package contains a file that looks like cruft from the Python build process such as "pytest" cached output or similar.

As such files are unlikely to be of utility to end-users they should not be shipped in the final binary package. They could also conflict with files from other packages and/or affect the reproducibility of your package.

Please rebuild using a newer version of pybuild/dh-python which will automatically remove many of these files.

Severity: warning

Check: files/names
