This will create circular dependency issues. python-mypy_extensions depends (and should depend on) python-mypy, not the other way around.

While doing my tests running some sample scripts from python-mypy folder I run into an error like this:

$ mypy 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mypy", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3250, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3234, in _call_aside
    f(*args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 3263, in _initialize_master_working_set
    working_set = WorkingSet._build_master()
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 583, in _build_master
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 900, in require
    needed = self.resolve(parse_requirements(requirements))
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/", line 786, in resolve
    raise DistributionNotFound(req, requirers)
pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'mypy_extensions<0.5.0,>=0.4.3' distribution was not found and is required by mypy

Installed python-mypy-extensions later and get another error, because there were still some other rundependencies needed like python-typed-ast and python-typing-extensions.

In the end:

$ mypy
Success: no issues found in 1 source file
$ mypy *.py
Success: no issues found in 14 source files

Did a research on other distros and found they too placed python-mypy-extensions as rundependency of python-mypy.

Also here python-mypy developers stated what are the requirements.

In that case, python-mypy_extensions needs to have python-mypy removed as a rundep.
