Yes, please update to the latest version (2.0.6 at the time of writing). I guess this shouldn't take too much time, thanks!

Report to the Spyder maintainers/developers?

Compiling works for me (Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal).

1) Downloaded spyder-2.0.6.zip from Sourceforge
2) sudo aptitude install sphinx
3) unzip and cd into directory
4) python setup.py install

Thanks a lot, I will give it a try.

Why is the bug unassigned again?
I don't know about the internal processes but would it be possible for you
to get the package updated in the repository as well?

Successfully built the package on Natty (see attachment)

Mate we never upload the .deb file.
And if a package is waiting for sponsorship than why double our work :)
There are many packages that needs update. Better pack them.
Thank You :)

Sorry, didn't know, just removed the .deb from the report.

Reviewed this, corrected version string to use 0ubuntu1 instead of 0build1, and fixed the maintainer field with update-maintainer. Beside that, it looks good, so uploading

spyder (2.0.6-0ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * New upstream release (LP: #645138)
  * Dropped all patches, code completely modified so patches
    cannot be applied
  * Applied patch to import file profiling.txt from spyder-1.1.8
  * debian/rules: doc_src -> doc

I still have one suggestion for improvement:
Could you please make the package recommend the "pylint" package as it
can directly be run from within the GUI (this is actually one of the new features
in version 2 of Spyder I believe). Thanks!
