Bug#1002542: python-requests-cache breaks howdoi autopkgtest: 'requests_cache' has no attribute 'install_cache'

Source: python-requests-cache, howdoi
Control: found -1 python-requests-cache/0.8.1-2
Control: found -1 howdoi/1.1.9-1
Severity: serious

Dear maintainer(s),

With a recent upload of python-requests-cache the autopkgtest of howdoi fails in testing when that autopkgtest is run with the binary packages of python-requests-cache from unstable. It passes when run with only packages from testing. In tabular form:

                       pass            fail
python-requests-cache  from testing    0.8.1-2
howdoi                 from testing    1.1.9-1
all others             from testing    from testing

I copied some of the output at the bottom of this report.

Currently this regression is blocking the migration of python-requests-cache to testing [1]. Due to the nature of this issue, I filed this bug report against both packages. Can you please investigate the situation and reassign the bug to the right package?

More information about this bug and the reason for filing it can be found on
