Seafile-cli Debian dependency


I just noticed that seafile-cli in Debian depends on the package python-searpc which is only present in oldstable.

Maybe the package needs a refresh with a new dependency on python3-searpc?

Where did you get the package from?

$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 12
$ apt-cache show seafile-cli | grep Depends
Depends: python3:any, seafile-daemon (>= 8.0.10-1), python3-seafile (>= 8.0.10-1)
$ apt-cache show python3-seafile | grep Depends
Depends: python3:any, python3-searpc (>= 3.2.0)

Here package comes from stock repository
