Hi, Holger!

In your example, 'command' is a string, but in piuparts code a command
is a list of strings. Thus:

command = ['huhu', '', 'huhu']
command = [x for x in command if x]
print command
['huhu', 'huhu']

Unless I missed something, function run requires a list of string. In
fact, there is an assertion cheking it. Probably, the code is too
general because it eliminates empty strings and None args. But I don't
see any problem on that way.

> b.) what is the debian_bundle issue?

Sorry about my poor explanation. In sid, if you import debian_budle
you get this message:

import debian_bundle
/usr/bin/ipython:1: DeprecationWarning: please use 'debian' instead of

The issue is only the warning message. That's all :-)

Thanks for your attention, Holger (and for your patience).
