Bug Description

In the latest rebuild test for atheist, it failed to build because it build-depends on python, which does not provide python2.5:

Hopefully I'm doing this right: in order to fix the issue, I've opted to replace the dependency on python with python-all and Python-Version: 2.5 with all. It appears to me like it is pretty much the smallest change possible, builds cleanly, and the application still seems to run correctly.

Attached debdiff appears to correct the issue.

I would prefer that you changed python-all back to just python and us XS-Python-Version: >= 2.5. Could you also please start using bzr to do your work https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DistributedDevelopment/Documentation

Sure, done!

As for Bazaar, I was already using it, and there should initially have been a branch attached to this bug. In any case, I've now added a merge request to my branch -- lp:~mathieu-tl/ubuntu/lucid/atheist/ftbfs-lp506240
