I tried to fix it (and learn) but I couldn't :-/

I'm not able to rebuild the package (No module named DistUtilsExtra.auto) and looking for a solution I saw I'm not the first: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sessioninstaller/+bug/703330/comments/3

Let me know if I can help.

Peco: you could try to "sudo apt-get build-dep sessioninstaller" to get all the build dependencies of the package?

Thank you Daniel. It works! (sorry, it was my fault no to try first :-/)

Nevertheless, following your guide[1] I was able to fix the bug! (at least at maverick [2]).

Peco: your code looks nice, thank you for working on this, but as you can see, there's already a merge request attached (check right below the description of the bug, before the first comment). You have committed the code, but generally you also have to request a merge for the code to be merged into the trunk of the package, and you've not done that, next time please do that too, as it helps people know what they should review. Thanks, and keep up the good work, that's a nice start, we'll be waiting for your next fixes :)

I understand!. Thank you Daniel.

Ops, I found the diff file at Related Branches and I see (just now :-/) that there were two typos. One, described at the 'bug description' and another at the README file of the package.
I will fix the second one, and follow all the process again.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/Debian. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance.
