fyi, yesterday I updated the list from Joss, see
http://people.debian.org/~joss/python-list.txt (link does not work),
see http://people.debian.org/~doko/python-list.txt instead.

automake problem, which it seems I failed to fix.

but one of it's build-dep's is listed as:

 -gimp1.2 (1.2.3-2.4 to -)

    * Maintainer: Ben Gertzfield
    * Valid candidate 

so probably, it doesn't make sense to move it to testing, if gimp1.2
is removed.

I'll do an NMU now.

does Ryan work on this?

already asked for rebuild ... no reaction.

hppa done.

I'll do another upload of the python2.3 and python2.2 packages to
properly compile with -mieee on alpha and fix wrong recommends in
python2.3. should be quickly built ...
