Bug Description

> mirrorkit (0.1.1-0ubuntu2) oneiric; urgency=low
> * Convert to dh_python2 and dh7.

Hi, been reviewing dh_python2 conversions. Probably not very helpful for
the packages concerned, but useful for future conversions :)

This one still has a
Provides: ${python:Provides}

That's almost never actually wanted, (it only makes sense in
arch-specific packages that can't be built for all supported python
versions, and are depended on by other packages.

In this case, it isn't even being populated.
dpkg-gencontrol: warning: Provides field of package mirrorkit: unknown substitution variable ${python:Provides}
