Package: qtiplot
User: ubuntu-devel at lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu natty ubuntu-patch
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

python-sip4 is a transitional package which depends upon python-sip. Its
description states that "It can be safely removed."

The qtiplot package therefore needs to be updated, to depend upon python-sip
rather than python-sip4.

There are also a couple of redundant build dependencies:

sip4 -> python-sip-dev
python-sip4-dev -> python-sip-dev

In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to achieve the following:

  * debian/control: Update sip dependencies to avoid using transitional
    packages (LP: #702853)

Thanks for considering the patch.
