W package-contains-python-tests-in-global-namespace

All reports of package-contains-python-tests-in-global-namespace for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This package appears to contain Python test files such as 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 instead.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb
