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.
