There *is*  a licensing  problem that  should be solved  by at  least by
fixing  debian/copyright. This is  a RC  bug (policy  violation, doesn't
respect DFSG  by requiring  the user to  be bound to  additional license
terms, i.e GPL ones).

You are hiding the problem by downgrading severity.

What  I am not  sure of  is that  mixing GPL  licensed code  and OpenSSL
derived  code prevent  Python to  be distributed  in this  form  or just
programs using both pieces of code to be distributed.
