Does this mean that Debian is going to ignore classifiers for all projects
that list 3.4 without listing 3.5 and will start reporting bugs against
them before upstream projects have time to start testing against 3.5? Why
is Debian running tests against versions of python that upstream doesn't
claim to support?
