Re: Question about debian/upstream reference

Actually, I just ran some commands within ipython. The actual problem is
most likely within libyaml. 

Considering a bug report, I found this upstream ticket [1]. 
They seem to want to address the ':' problem with the implementation of
the yaml 1.2 spec [2], and until then propose to quote scalars that have
a colon in the flow context, and then there is also a longish discussion
about the problem [3]. 

IMHO if a bug in the Debian bug tracker should be filed, then it should
suffice to point to these information from upstream.
