Package: yubikey-manager
Version: 2.1.0-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Dear Maintainer,

When I install yubikey-manager I get a missing package error, which makes the
package unusable:

    $ ykman
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/ykman", line 6, in <module>
        from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

This can be resolved by installing python3-pkg-resources.  I'm pretty new to
Debian and don't do anything Python work, but as far as I can tell it's just a
missing dependency.  python3-pkg-resources is used by reportbug, so trying to
reproduce this is a bit tricky on my end: I can remove python3-pkg-resources,
but that removes reportbug as well.

This is my first time trying to submit a Debian bug report, so I'm not sure
what else to include here.
