Bug#594341: qtiplot: debian/patches/debian-changes-0.9.8-1 undoes the transition to python2.6

Package: qtiplot
Version: 0.9.8-1
Severity: normal

An apparently accidental patch showed up in 0.9.8: debian/patches/debian-

This patch does not exist in the svn, but does exist in the source package in
testing and unstable. This patch and the reference to it in debian/series
should be removed, as it will cause a FTBFS on distros that do not have
python2.5, such as ubuntu. As you can see from my system info, qtiplot still
depends on python2.5

This is the contents of the patch:
