Bug#1001243: cloud-sptheme: autopkgtest needs update for new version of python3-defaults: python3.10: not found

Source: cloud-sptheme
Version: 1.10.1.post20200504175005-3
Severity: serious

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of python3-defaults the autopkgtest of cloud-sptheme fails in testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of python3-defaults from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from testing. In tabular form:

                       pass            fail
python3-defaults       from testing    3.9.8-1
cloud-sptheme          from testing    1.10.1.post20200504175005-3
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report. Seems you test for all supported Python3 versions but you don't ensure they are actually all installed during autopkgtesting.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of python3-defaults to testing [1]. Of course, python3-defaults shouldn't just break your autopkgtest (or even worse, your package), but it seems to me that the change in python3-defaults was intended and your package needs to update to the new situation.

If this is a real problem in your package (and not only in your autopkgtest), the right binary package(s) from python3-defaults should really add a versioned Breaks on the unfixed version of (one of your) package(s). Note: the Breaks is nice even if the issue is only in the autopkgtest as it helps the migration software to figure out the right versions to combine in the tests.
