Gluck has python-xm installed but not python-libxml2, if I run the script there:

$ make
/usr/bin/python2.4 parseDsa2Oval.py -d ../2000 >oval-definitions-2000.xml
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "parseDsa2Oval.py", line 15, in ?
    import oval.definition.generator
  File "/home/jfs/webwml/english/security/oval/oval/definition/generator.py",
line 13, in ?
    import xml.dom.ext
ImportError: No module named ext
make: *** [oval-definitions-2000.xml] Error 1

The problem actually seems to be that python-xml just installs
python2.3-xml, whileas we need python2.4-xml instead.

Could a 'debwww' member please approve for the installation of the
python2.4-xml package?
