Quoting Ghislain Vaillant <ghisvail@xxxxxxxxx>:

    s/python3-precis-i18n/python-precis-i18n

    Unless this source package is Python 3 specific, please consider
    renaming the source package to python-precis-i18n, or just

    precis-i18n. The "python3-" prefix is for binary packages built
    for the Python 3 interpreter. Unless the DPMT policy has changed
since.
OK, will do. The minimal supported Python version is 3.3 btw. No 2.7.
The current policy discourages providing Python 2 binary packages for new source packages anyway.

There are other interpreters than Python 3 however, such as pypy and perhaps pypy3 in the future [1].

The "python-" prefix for source packages refers to Python the language.

The "python-", "python3-", "pypy-" prefixes for binary packages correspond to the respective target interpreters.
