Bug#599534: unblock: python-distutils-extra 2.22-2

Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org@packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package python-distutils-extras 2.22-1. The main reason
for this request is that the current version now builds a python3
package, which was meant to go into squeeeze (however, a separate
unblock request has been requested for this).

The new version also fixes a range of bugs, and just two tiny features
(see 2.21 changelog) which are easy to test, and I confirm that they
work fine (they also don't change the default behaviour).

The package has an automatic test suite which covers most of the auto
module and the underlying DistUtilsExtra.* modules, and is run for
both Python 2.6 and 3.0 during build (and fails the build on failure),
so I'm confident in that it doesn't introduce regressions.

Thanks for considering,

Martin Pitt

 python-distutils-extra  (2.22-2) unstable; urgency=low

   * Upload to unstable, now that the current python3 is in unstable.
   * Add debian/watch.
   * Add bzr-builddeb configuration (merge mode).
   * debian/copyright: Add missing Canonical copyright (Closes: #597548).
     While we are at it, also convert the file to DEP-5, and fix the
     common-licenses link to point to the versioned GPL.
   * DistUtilsExtra/command/check.py: Remove explicit GPL-3 license header, so
     that the file falls under the package's general GPL-2+ license. Rodney
     Dawes, the author, gave his explicit permission for this in #597548 (in
     fact, GPL-3 was unintended in the first place).
   * test/auto.py: Ignore python warning about import from local path.

python-distutils-extra (2.22-1) experimental; urgency=low

   [ Matthias Klose ]
   * setup.py: Drop import of "commands"; unused, and does not exist in
   * Build a python3 package.
   [ Martin Pitt ]
   * DistUtilsExtra/command/build_extra.py: Use "in" operator instead of
     has_key(). It's more elegant and Python 3 compatible.
   * test/auto.py: Use Python3 compatible octal constant.
   * test/auto.py: Decode stdout/stderr result from subprocess from bytes to
     str, to work with Python3.
   * test/auto.py: Use whichever Python interpreter we got invoked with (using
     /proc/self/exe) instead of hardcoding "python". With that we can run the
     tests through python3 as well.
   * DistUtilsExtra/auto.py: Port from deprecated "compiler" module to current
     "ast" module.
   * test/auto.py: Only set PYTHONPATH if it isn't set already, so that we can
     override it from outside.
   * test/auto.py: Do not require that "setup.py clean -a" doesn't print
     anything to stderr; with Python 3.1 it now sends out warnings about
     nonexisting directories.
   * test/auto.py: Changed print statements to work with both Python 2 and 3.
   * DistUtilsExtra/command/build_extra.py: Drop unnecessary hashbang line.
   * test/auto.py: Filter out bogus errors about missing files which current
     Python 3 distutils spews out.
   * debian/rules: Run tests with python3 as well, against the installed
     modules in debian/python3-distutils-extra.
   * test/auto.py, debian/control: Use python{,3}-{pkg-resources,httplib2} as
     external test modules instead of -xdg and -dateutil, since the latter are
     not available for Python 3 yet.
   * debain/source/format: Switch to 3.0 (quilt), since we produce upstream
     tarballs and releases.

python-distutils-extra (2.21) unstable; urgency=low

   [ Umang Varma ]
   * python-mkdebian: Fix duplicate dependency substitutions. (LP: #608304)
   * python-mkdebian: Add --distribution switch for the changelog. If not
     specified, python-mkdebian will detect the distribution as before.
     (LP: #608589)
   * python-mkdebian: Add --no-changelog flag. (LP: #587538)
   [ Martin Pitt ]
   * debian/control: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.1, no changes necessary.
