Package: python-openturns
Version: 0.13.1-1
Severity: serious
User: lintian-maint at debian.org
Usertags: package-installs-python-pyc

Compiled python source files should not be included in the
package. These files should be removed from the package and created at
package installation time in the postinst. Doing otherwise violates
the draft python policy. 

Also, the approved mechanisms arrange for the python code to be
compiled for a range of python itnerpreter versions, arrange for
recompilation with the python interpreter status changes on the target
machine, and arrange for dead versions to be removed.  It allows for
support of multiple python interpreter versions in parallel, despite
byte-code incompatbilities.

Filed as serious, since this will currently have this package
rejected. See
for details. This means the package has been deemed too buggy to be in
