Subject: Bug#851135: dh_python3: Cannot find package that
provides singledispatch

Package: python3-singledispatch
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

On an attempt to build a package with a b-dep / i-dep on singledispatch,
dh_python3 complains that it cannot find the package providing
singledispatch. Is this behaviour expected? Does it have to do with the
removal of the egg-info directory mentioned in the change log for

Sure singledispatch could be added manually to py3dist-overrides, but I
would rather have dh_python3 figure things out automatically as it
properly does for all the other b-deps / i-deps.
