Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The package contains files left over from a Python build process, such as cached output from pytest.

Users of your package probably do not need the files. Please rebuild your package with a newer version of pybuild/dh-python. Many of the files will disappear.

Usually, the files contain time-stamped data. They will prevent your package from being reproducible.
