All reports of python-script-but-no-python-dep for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

Packages with Python scripts should depend on the package python. Those with scripts that specify a specific version of Python must depend on that version of Python (exactly).

For example, if a script in the package uses #!/usr/bin/python, the package needs a dependency on python. If a script uses #!/usr/bin/python2.6, the package needs a dependency on python2.6. A dependency on python (>= 2.6) is not correct, since later versions of Python may not provide the /usr/bin/python2.6 binary.

If you are using debhelper, adding ${python:Depends} to the Depends field and ensuring dh_pysupport or dh_pycentral are run during the build should take care of adding the correct dependency.

In some cases a weaker relationship, such as Suggests or Recommends, will be more appropriate.

Severity: important, Certainty: certain
