Re: python 2.7 in wheezy / removal messages without reason

Why did it take so long? Aptitude shows immediately that ‘duply’ was to
be removed because ‘duplicity’ was to be removed; and looking one step
further, that ‘duplicity’ was to be removed because the available
version has a dependency on “python (< 2.7)”.

The tools available on your system can show the reason. Is there another
question you have that I'm not getting?
