python-nova depends on python-setuptools-git?

Bug Description

I can't see why this dependency is needed

Ran a grep for setuptools_git in /usr/share/pyshared/nova and didn't return anything.

python-setuptools is needed for openstack/common/ but the git version isn't as far as I can tell.

  Installed: 2012.2-0ubuntu2~cloud0

We use python-setup-git for our ci testing so that we can create tarballs based off the git tree, so it is necessary for the packaging building but not necessarily for the archive since we use the upstream tarballs.

To confirm, this is purely a build dependency, and not a binary dependency. This means that it should not be installing python-setuptools-git on your system, if it is - please re-open this bug.

I can't reopen this bug. Please have a look at the debian/control file of python-nova it is a depends not a build depends.

It should depend on python-setuptools not python-setuptools-git
