Package: python3-authheaders
Version: 0.10.0-1
Severity: important

Dear maintainer,

The python3-authheaders package in Buster is missing the .egg-info metadata
so it can't be found by e.g. pkg-resources:

>>> import authheaders; authheaders
<module 'authheaders' from '/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/authheaders/__init__.py'>
>>> import pkg_resources; pkg_resources.get_distribution('authheaders')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 481, in get_distribution
    dist = get_provider(dist)
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 357, in get_provider
    return working_set.find(moduleOrReq) or require(str(moduleOrReq))[0]
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 900, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 786, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'authheaders' distribution was not found and is required by the application

I note that 0.11.0-1 (from snapshot.debian.org) has the correct files:


It wasn't obvious to me what change from 0.10.0-1 to 0.11.0-1 fixed this otherwise
I would have attempted to provide a patch.

I encountered this while trying to run a newer version of Mailman3 on Buster, which
depends on this package.
