It was specifically avoided in CDBS to ease backporting. Using new python install helper cripples backportability as well. > > I suspect because dh_python2 questions the CDBS routines.

I believe no answer to that is definitive, as it involves multiple opinions. I do not see it as a warning but a question: Did you forget to include the ...=deb option? ...and my answer to that question is this: no, I did not forget - I deliberately avoided that option and instead (thanks to CDBS) carefully applied other options effectively causing same results to ease backportability. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
