looking at tests/test_config.py I see nothing wrong, wheezy is
oldstablde there and squeeze is only referenced there for history.

So I assume it's actually not piuparts which "is wrong" but distro-info
in that jessie chroot, which states that squeeze is oldstable, which it

I'm not sure how to deal with this bug report :-( Maybe this is actually
a bug in distro-info in jessie and this bug should be reassigned there?
(+"affects piuparts")

I've downgraded the severity for now as the package builds fine in sid.
