Bug#910095: epoptes: please don't build-depend on python3-all-dev


Source: epoptes
Version: 1.0.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear maintainer,

I've noticed that your package epoptes build-depends on
python3-all-dev, whilst building only architecture-idependant

Actually, it build-depends on:
    python3 | python3-all | python3-dev | python3-all-dev
which is totally unneeded and arguably also wrong.  Those four
packages have different meanings, and are definitely not a
substitute of each other.

This is actively causing issues during Python3 transitions, as it
causes people to waste their time in understanding why such package
shows up in the transition tracker.

Please change your build-dependency on either "python3" or
"python3-all" as appropriate; refer to the Debian Python Policy or
the debian-python mailing list for more details.

Thanks in advance.
