As other folks already mentioned, you do not use CC: you already use
X-Debbugs-CC. In this particular case, email with bug number got
filtered-out as duplicate in my setup.

Looks fine, but I do not understand following line in `debian/rules':

	rm -rfv debian/python3-github/usr/lib/python3.*

What is removed and why same statement it is not needed for python2
version?  Comment in `debian/rules' would be nice.

And some very minor suggestions:

 * Standards-Version slightly outdated
 * debhelper-compat style reduces redundancy
 * Probably F-variables could be used to avoid repetition in
   binary package descriptions? (See dpkg-substvars(5))

I do not know habits of Python Modules Team, but would not it be more
apporiate for this packages to be sponsored by DD from team? I can check
basic things, but I do not know whole picture, like transitions or
reverse dependencies.

PS. I am glad to see that pygithub finally moved under aegis of
Python Modules Team.
