Wsource-package-encodes-python-version

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

This source package encodes a Python version in its name such as python2-foo or python3-bar.

This could result in a misleading future situation where this source package supports multiple versions as well unnecessary given that the binary package names will typically encode the supported versions.

Please override this tag with a suitably-commented override if there is no single upstream codebase that supports both versions.
