pylons (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

After installing pylons from hardy into gutsy I've got this error:

$ paster create -t pylons helloworld
Traceback (most recent call last):

Pylons or Paster or something should be depending on python-nose >= 0.9.3.

Related branches

Just to be clear, you've locally installed a deb for pylons from the Hardy repo on to your Gutsy system?

python-nose (0.9.2-3) is in the Gutsy repos while python-nose (0.10.0-1) is in the Hardy repo. If you install the package for your distro the required deps should be pulled. Does this happen with the correct package provided on your systems repo?

I'm going to close this bug as installing packages from a different version is not supported. If I've miss understood your problem, please feel free to re open the bug.

Yes, I've built the package from Hardy in Gutsy, but even then, what I'm reporting is as true in Hardy as it is in any other situation: Pylons depends on Nose 0.10.0 yet the Pylons package doesn't depend on the Nose package >= 0.10.0.

Yes, python-pylons ( depends on python-nose (>= 0.9.1) while it actually needs python-nose (>= 0.9.3). While this isn't really an issue for Hardy as the current versions of nose works, the dependency field should get updated.

That won't fix your problem though. In fact it will keep you from installing python-pylons from Hardy on Gutsy.

I'll reopen and tag packaging.

Attached is a debdiff updating the dependencies.

Yes, that's the good thing. Actually, I build always packages from sources, if the right dependencies were there, I would have just downloaded a newer nose. In the current situation I had to try the system and see it fail and infeer than a newer version of nose was required.
Thank you for understanding.
