what about python2.3 having "Depends: python (>= 2.3)"
This is IMHO a policy violation. python (2.3) should depend on python2.3,
python2.3 should not depend on python.
It's playing havoc with my mixed testing/unstable systems, as some
unstable packages want python2.3 (>=2.3), which then wants to pull in
every single python package from unstable because it forces the python
(2.3) transition which I really don't want to do until it is ready. It
doesn't have to be this way.
Should someone file a bug report against this?
