Bug Description


fails on babune for OSX 10.6 (

Long story short: the launchpadlib features needed by the launchpad plugin don't require lazr.uri, but launchpadlib imports it for some other features define in the same file.

From the bzr point of view, it's enough to test for the presence of the lazr.uri module and skip the test (even if this sound weird, these are unexpected failures and add no value to the tests).

Since launchpadlib is used on platforms with no package manager, it would be nice if this was better handled by launchpadlib itself though.

It turns out I was wrong in my diagnosis.

This is really a packaging bug in the osx installers: launchpadlib is only installed if the bzr-pipeline plugin is installed (it's an optional dependency there).

But the dependencies of launchpadlib itself should therefore be also taken into account:
- python-lazr.uri
- python-lazr.restfulclient
- python-simplejson
- python-httplib2
- python-wadlib
- python-oauth

This is a significant burden and we may prefer to *remove* launchpadlib in the mean time if bzr-pipeline can survive from that.

We may also want to package launchpadlib in its own subpackage with its own dependencies and makes it a requirement for bzr-pipeline once we get there.
