Bug#930950: dh-python: Documentation unclear about requires.txt

Salvo Tomaselli-3
Package: dh-python
Version: 3.20190308
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
from conversations on IRC it appears that the requires.txt which gets parsed
must be located inside the egg. However the manpage does not mention this fact
leading to the assumption that the simple file in the source package is enough.

Can the documentation be edited to reflect this?

Thanks
