Re: Bug#680817: tryton-proteus: FTBFS: ImportError: No module named dateutil.relativedelta

* Mathias Behrle <mathiasb@m9s.biz>, 2012-07-09, 11:17:
I want to ask according to Debian policy [1] about a Pre-Depends with respect to the following build problem of proteus.

To know the proteus version, setup.py imports __init__.py from subfolder proteus, which itself imports classes depending on python modules not yet installed.
The problem is already known [2], the upstream bug report is at [3].

[1] http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-relationships.html
[2] http://www.tryton.org/~irclog/2012-06-28.log.html
[3] https://bugs.tryton.org/issue2705

Should I workaround the problem for wheezy by setting python-dateutils in Pre-Depends instead of Depends or should I rather wait for the upstream patch, for which I don't know if and when there will be a solution.

No. If a package is needed at built time, then you put it in Build-Depends. Pre-Depends has nothing to do with your problem.
