I tried to enable the automatic debug symbol packages, with the python debug 
interface in a new python3-rrdtool-dbg package. However, lintian complains:
W: rrdtool changes: package-builds-dbg-and-dbgsym-variants python3-rrdtool-
N:    This package appears to build both -dbg and -dbgsym variants of a
N:    package. Only one package should contain the debug symbols
N:    Usually the -dbg should be dropped in favour of the -dbgsym. However, in
N:    some cases (e.g. Python modules) the -dbg contains more than just the
N:    debug symbols. In these cases the -dbgsym should not be built.
N:    Refer to the dh_strip(1) manual page and
N:    https://wiki.debian.org/AutomaticDebugPackages for details.
N:    Severity: normal, Certainty: certain
N:    Check: changes-file, Type: changes

So I did automatic symbols for all packages but python3-rrdtool, that will 
keep the old style -dbg package.


Comments are welcome.
