script-uses-unversioned-python-in-shebang

This package contains a script with unversioned Python shebang.

This package contains a script with unversioned Python shebang and thus defaults to using Python 2. The 2.x series of Python is deprecated and apart from rare cases, will not be supported in Debian Bullseye.

If the script in question is compatible with Python 3, please modify it to use /usr/bin/python3 instead. If it only is Python 2 compatible, please modify it to use /usr/bin/python2.

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 2.112.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 02df726. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check languages/python/scripts.
