Package: rpmlint
Version: 1.9-6
Severity: minor


rpmlint is Python2/3 bilinguial

( the Fedora .spec file still support Python2 for backward compatibility with old RHEL
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/rpmlint.git/tree/rpmlint.spec )

Can the Debian package be switched to make it a Python 3 application ?

python3-rpm is already available in the archive.
