epydoc only seems to be used for formatting and README.Debian confirms
this:

...and looking at the bug it seems it was already dealt with by dropping
the epydoc dependency. Thanks!

Please help fix pydoctor

2019-07-28 Thread Ian Jackson
Hi, Python folks.

I think help is needed regarding

  #932584  python-pydoctor: Epydoc will be removed

It seems to be languishing rather.  What I don't understand is why
pydoctor depends on epydoc given that, in the words of the
Description:

  [Pydoctor] was written primarily to replace epydoc ...

I had a quick look through the source but I don't know enough about
pydoctor to make immediate sense of the results of my grep.  Maybe
some person who knows more about pydoctor can help ?

(I'm CCing this to the gbp maintainers because this came to my
attention due to an autoremoval bug where a package of mine has a
dependency chain via gbp.)

Thanks,
Ian.
