source-package-encodes-python-version

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.

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 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit d219a5a. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check languages/python.
