Source: cobbler
Version: 2.6.6+dfsg1-12
Severity: serious

Justification: FTBFS on amd64


During a rebuild of all packages in sid, your package failed to build on

Relevant part (hopefully):
> make[1]: Entering directory '/<<BUILDDIR>>/cobbler-2.6.6+dfsg1'
> pyversions: missing X(S)-Python-Version in control file, fall back to debian/pyversions
> pyversions: missing debian/pyversions file, fall back to supported versions
> py3versions: no X-Python3-Version in control file, using supported versions
> if [ -e /<<BUILDDIR>>/cobbler-2.6.6+dfsg1/debian/CHANGELOG ] ; then \
> 	dh_installchangelogs /<<BUILDDIR>>/cobbler-2.6.6+dfsg1/debian/CHANGELOG ; \
> else \
> 	dh_installchangelogs ; \
> fi
> make[1]: Leaving directory '/<<BUILDDIR>>/cobbler-2.6.6+dfsg1'
>    dh_installman -O--buildsystem=python_distutils
> dh_installman: failed to read cobbler.1.gz
> debian/rules:7: recipe for target 'binary' failed
> make: *** [binary] Error 255

If the failure looks somehow time/timezone related:
Note that this rebuild was performed without the 'tzdata' package
installed in the chroot. tzdata used be (transitively) part of
build-essential, but it no longer is. If this package requires it to
build, it should be added to build-depends. For the release team's
opinion on this, see

About the archive rebuild: The rebuild was done on EC2 VM instances from
Amazon Web Services, using a clean, minimal and up-to-date chroot. Every
failed build was retried once to eliminate random failures.
