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 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.

Severity: normal, Certainty: certain

Check: files, Type: binary, udeb

Emitted (non-overridden): 4, overridden: 10, total: 14

The package names link to the relevant maintainer page and the corresponding report for the source package. The links go to the full maintainer report page, which includes info and experimental tags and overridden tags, rather than the default page that shows only errors and warnings.
