Package: python3-yaml
Version: 3.13-1

Dear Maintainer,

In a multi-arch setup, the "python3-yaml" package should be able to
satisfy dependencies from other packages, as the Python interpreter in
combination with python3-yaml can be used regardless of the
architecture of the depending packet.

For instance, when installing an i386 package which depends on
"python3-yaml" on amd64, the package manager should allow an already
installed python3-yaml (along with the python3:amd64) to satisfy the

See <https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec> for details, and
"python3-apt" as a somewhat similar package that already does this.

Regards, Rotty
