protobuf-compiler generates code that requires python2.4

Bug #348243 reported by dobey
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
protobuf (Ubuntu)
Fix Released

Bug Description

The currently packaged versiion of protobuf (2.0.3) has an error in the python code generator, which is already fixed upstream, that embeds a line of "#!/usr/bin/python2.4" at the beginning of every python file it outputs. The upstream fix was simplty to remove the printing of this line, and the attached patch does this as well. It is not needed as the generated code is to be used as modules. Please update the packages in jaunty with the attached patch, as the default is 2.6 there, and having this output in the code causes package dependencies on python2.4 from pycentral.

Looking at the attachments in this bug report, I noticed that "Patch to remove python2.4 dependency" was not flagged as a patch. A patch contains changes to an Ubuntu package that will resolve a bug and this attachment is one! Subsequently, I've checked the patch flag for it. In the future when submitting patches please use the patch checkbox as there are some Launchpad searches that use this feature. Thanks for your contribution Rodney Dawes!
