python3 and /usr/share


I am trying to create packages for Python3 for the source package
[1]. Following the guide [2], I get some success. However, the packages
for Python2 and Python3 differ significantly: in the Python2 package,
all machine independent data go into /usr/share/, while the Python3
package contains everything under /usr/lib/python3.

Is this intentional, or shall I change something in the rules to get a
proper layout? I've investigated some other python3 packages, they all
put everything in /usr/lib/python3/. However, this seems to contradict
the FHS? What is the way to go here?

I've uploaded the package to debian-mentors [3], in case one wants to
review it.

Best regards
