Yeah, but this bug also raised the fact that python-pyutil and
python-zbase32 should be added as dependencies too, so that was my main
motivation not to include tahoe-lafs in Wheezy, as they are not yet
packaged into Debian.
Still, in your reply to #683331, you make it quite clear that tahoe-lafs
isn't concerned by that, and should work normally (as I noticed during my
tests) without them. This python modules should only be dependencies of
python-zfec, if people want to use it by hand.
So I guess it's fine to leave tahoe-lafs 1.9.2 in Wheezy.
I'll take care to add a dependency on net-tools in a later update.
So Julien, you were definitively right to unblock it. ;)
That was quite an intense evening. :)
