Package: python-pip
Version: 8.1.2-3
Severity: whishlist
File: /usr/bin/pip


Since we are installing pip from a Debian package, shouldn't we have it
using "--disable-pip-version-check" by default, to avoid this?

You are using pip version 8.1.2, however version 9.0.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'pip install --upgrade pip' command.

Specially for stable releases (where the user will see this message for
the whole stable lifetime).

Thank you!

Best regards,
