Indeed. That's how it works in Debian. > Will you consider making python-magic an optional dependency of > diffoscope, so that downstream packagers don't have to package > python-magic from PyPi or work around this issue by patching setup.py? I have no idea how you can specify alternate dependencies in setup.py or if that's possible. If you find a solution I guess someone could apply a patch. If that's not possible, I believe that carrying a one-liner in Guix is not unreasonable. -- Lunar .''`. lu...@debian.org : :Ⓐ : # apt-get install anarchism `. `'` `-
