Yes, britney ignores Build-Depends.  Thank God.

It's a prereq for the KDE transition.  That doesn't mean it's delaying it,
given that it will still take some time to get the KDE transition together.
Subversion itself now has its RC bugs fixed, and only waits on perl (...
again) to be built on all archs.

I'm still fine with removing pysvn and rapidsvn if libpng does hold up KDE,
but it still looks to me like subversion has a shot at getting in first.

That's certainly true, it's just a question of being sure we've identified
the right leaf packages such that they actually help the process.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
