Which is correct unless the binary package has its own "Section"

But now I see what is missing: On
https://packages.qa.debian.org/p/parcimonie.html is written:

    There were override disparities found in suite unstable:

    parcimonie: Override says perl - optional, .deb says net -

So you can probably revert that one commit in Git (not necessary and
will cause a lintian warning :-), but you need to reassign this bug
report to IIRC ftp.debian.org with some specific subject syntax and
usertags to get the overrides in the package list updated. I don't
know them by mind, but reportbug knows them.
