Epackage-contains-python-header-in-incorrect-directory

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

This package ships a header file such as /usr/include/python3.7/foo/bar.h. However, /usr/include/python3.7 is a symlink to python3.7m in libpython3.7-dev.

This may result in silent file overwrites or, depending on the unpacking order (if /usr/include/python3.7 is a directory), separating the headers into two independent trees.

These header files should be shipped in /usr/include/python3.7m instead.
