There might even be *several* RC bugs there :

(1) my giac package needed to have an explicit dep on python3, because
obviously it was depending on something else pulling it in -- no need
to file one, I have uploaded already ;

(2) the various schroots I have used to test my package, both before
the upload (on my box, kept up to date) and after I saw the problem (on
several porterboxes, hopefully maintained up to date), should perhaps
have some bugs filed, since they miss one of their goals -- checking
the correctness of b-deps. But there I'm a bit at loss as to where
filing those.
