Dear Maintainer,

Your package still uses nose [1], which is an obsolete testing framework for
Python, dead and unmaintained since 2015 [2][3].

If you received this bug report, it means that your package either has a
build-dependency on python3-nose or uses that package in debian/tests/control.
If that is not the case, please reply and CC me explicitly.

Please port your package to one of the alternatives: nose2 [4], pytest [5]
or unittest from Python standard library [6].

There is a script called nose2pytest [7] which can assist with migrating from
nose to pytest.

This mass bug filing was discussed on debian-devel in [8].
