[Python-modules-team] Bug#920027: python3-persistent: ships headers in /usr/include/python3.7/

Package: python3-persistent
Version: 4.2.2-1
Severity: serious


your package ships the header file(s):


but /usr/include/python3.7 is a symlink to python3.7m in
libpython3.7-dev. This may result in silent file overwrites or depending
on the unpacking order /usr/include/python3.7 being a directory in some
cases, separating the headers into two independent trees.

These header files must be shipped in /usr/include/python3.7m/ instead.
Please talk to the python maintainers to find a proper solution for
handling the packaging of python header files in a future-proof way.
