Package: printrun-common
Version: 2.0.1-1
Severity: important
Control: block 1060427 by -1

Usertags: appdirs-removal

python3-appdirs is dead upstream[1] and its Debian maintainer has indicated
that it should not be included in trixie[2]. A recommended replacement is
python3-platformdirs[3], which is a fork of appdirs with a very similar API.

Please migrate from appdirs to platformdirs or some other replacement,
so that appdirs can be removed.
