Wpackage-contains-python-tests-in-global-namespace

Tag versions

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

This package appears to contain Python test files such as test_foo.py or test_foo/ in the global module namespace.

Whilst the tests may be useful in the binary package, it is probably a mistake to pollute the "top-level" namespace in this way.

Please install them to a subdirectory of the module being tested instead or simply omit from the binary package entirely.
