[Python-modules-team] Bug#991937: python3-pdfminer: Recommends python3-crypto, which is no longer in Debian

Package: python3-pdfminer
Version: 20200726-1
Severity: normal

python3-crypto was removed from bullseye in January 2021, and from unstable
in July 2021. The removal bug https://bugs.debian.org/979318 says it is
no longer maintained upstream and has been superseded by pycryptodome.

Note that pycryptodome is not a drop-in replacement (its top-level package
name is Cryptodome rather than Crypto, and there are some API changes) so
some porting will likely be required. Please see
<https://www.pycryptodome.org/en/latest/src/vs_pycrypto.html> for more
