Bug Description

launchpadlib has testresources listed in its requires.txt, though it is only a test dependency.

The package in Ubuntu doesn't depend on python-testresources.

If you try and use pkg_resources in any project that depends on launchpadlib you
get errors if python-testresources isn't installed.

The packaging could add the dependency, but it's only needed to run launchpadlib's
test suite.

launchpadlib could move testresources to be a test dependency (either test_requires
or whatever the spelling it, or an extra_requires for [test] or however that is done.)

In the meantime the workaround is to install python-testresources if you need
to use pkg_resources in a project that depends on launchpadlib.

Thanks,

James

python-testresources is only listed as "Suggests"
