Seems like we only need ipaddr for Ubuntu 19.10 and Debian 10 in requirements.txt file

And we can add python3-ethtool to the packages list.

guest@debian:~/wok/src/wok/plugins/kimchi$ cat /etc/issue
Debian GNU/Linux 10 \n \l

guest@debian:~/wok/src/wok/plugins/kimchi$ dpkg -S /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/
python3-distro: /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/

guest@debian:~/wok/src/wok/plugins/kimchi$ sudo apt search python3-ethtool

python3-ethtool/stable 0.14-1 i386
  Python bindings for the ethtool kernel interface - Python 3.x

And jsonschema is only a dependency for Wok. 

To add support for a new distro, you only need to change dependencies.yaml file and run `make` to auto generate the docs again.

You can follow what I did for Wok in

Debian 10 has slightly different requirements than Ubuntu 19.10; hence,
creating a new section in the README file and introducing Debian
requirements file.
