Look at /piupartslib/dependencyparser.py and at the Package and PackagesDB classes from piupartslib/packagesdb.py... Actually, I think it's really hard to change the code to cope as it's also far from trivial to use another dependency parser, esp. for master-slave mode. But still, while this is definitly a bug in piuparts, what do you think about the topic in subject? > That would make it easier to test against a different suite to the one > intended, too. Why? A suite should be self contained. (Or, explicitly "support" other suites like security supports main.) cheers, Holger
