Bug#914928: ITP: python-typing-extensions -- Backported and Experimental Type Hints for Python

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Debian Med team <debian-med@lists.debian.org>

* Package name    : python-typing-extensions
  Version         : 3.6.6
  Upstream Author : Guido van Rossum, Jukka Lehtosalo, Lukasz Langa, Michael Lee <levkivskyi@gmail.com>
* URL             : https://github.com/python/typing/blob/master/typing_extensions/README.rst

  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : Backported and Experimental Type Hints for Python

 The typing module was added to the standard library in Python 3.5 on a
 provisional basis and will no longer be provisional in Python 3.7. However,
 this means users of Python 3.5 - 3.6 who are unable to upgrade will not be
 able to take advantage of new types added to the typing module, such as
 typing.Text or typing.Coroutine.
 The typing_extensions module contains both backports of these changes as well
 as experimental types that will eventually be added to the typing module, such
 as Protocol.
 Users of other Python versions should continue to install and use the typing
 module from PyPi instead of using this one unless specifically writing code
 that must be compatible with multiple Python versions or requires experimental

A dependency of the latest release of python-schema-salad. This package will be
team-maintained by Debian Med
