Package: poezio
Version: 0.12.1-1
Severity: serious
Control: block 916817 by -1

Dear maintainer,

poezio has a dependency on
    python3.6:any, python3:any
most likely caused by a shabang in /usr/bin having python3.6 in it
instead of just python3.

Usually this is taken care of by pybuild, which you are not using.

If you can't move to the pybuild build system, then please consider
adding a override_dh_python3 to specify --shebang=/usr/bin/python3 to
force a shebang rewrite at the end of the build.

If you are unhappy about both the solution, then please just issue a
rebuild, which will cause the dependency to change to python3.7, bearing
in mind that you'll most likely get a similar bug next year while we are
moving to python 3.8.
