Bugs that'll block python 2.5
Yesterday about 100 binNMUs (per arch) were scheduled to rebuild stuff
against the new default python version.
amd64 and others seem to have attempted them all already, so I took a
peek at what failed, and tagged the existing bugs (or submitted new
ones) with the "goal-python2.5" usertag.
So, you can find a list of the 9 FTBFSes that need attention here (these
are not 7 days old yet, but patches would be always welcome):
There is also in that list a couple trivial uploads that'll be needed
(#476170 and #476173, though a proper patch for #476173 would be nice).
Finally, and quite importantly, there is what to do with modules that
have been added to the standard library in 2.5 (ctypes, celementtree,
wgsiref). These use either pycentral or pysupport, and since they mark
themselves as for python << 2.5 only, the dependency generated is on
python (<< 2.5), rendering them uninstallable.
This means that these three packages either are to be dropped, or
(preferably) fixed so that they can provide modules for python 2.4
(which will still be supported for lenny), yet be co-installable with
