Source: pyjwt
Version: 0.2.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

According to
http://self-issued.info/docs/draft-jones-json-web-token-01.html ,
a jwt implementation is required to support RSA signatures in order
to be conforming. In order for pyjwt to support RSA signatures, the
relevant version of PyCrypto needs to be installed; however, it is
not listed in the suggests, recommends, or depends for python{,3}-jwt.

Also note that upstream, as of the v0.4.0 release, has switched to using
the cryptography python module instead of PyCrypto.
