Lintian ReportsBETA

python-depends-but-no-python-helper

The source package declares a dependency on ${python:Depends} in the given binary package's debian/control entry. However, debian/rules doesn't call any helper that would generate this substitution variable.

The source package probably needs a call to dh_python2 (possibly via the Python2 debhelper add-on) in the debian/rules file.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.111.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit ffc17eb. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check debhelper.
