Hi there!

Since the last E17 libraries upload (, python-ecore cannot
be installed anymore:
(sid-amd64)root at gismo:/$ apt-get install python-ecore
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  python-ecore: Depends: libecore-evas0 but it is not installable
                Depends: libecore-fb0 but it is not installable
                Depends: libecore-x0 but it is not installable
                Depends: libecore0 but it is not installable
E: Broken packages
(sid-amd64)root at gismo:/$

This because the new libecore* packages have changed their name:
(sid-amd64)root at gismo:/$ dpkg -l libecore\*
||/ Name                   Version
ii  libecore-evas-svn-01
ii  libecore-fb-svn-01
ii  libecore-input-svn-01
ii  libecore-svn-01
ii  libecore-txt-svn-01
ii  libecore-x-svn-01
(sid-amd64)root at gismo:/$

Strangely enough, while other E17 libraries from the same snapshot
provides the old libraries names (e.g. libevas-svn-01 -> libevas0), this
is not the case for the ecore ones.  While a better thing would have
been to file this bug to ecore instead, I guess that there is a specific
reason for this situation.

Note that this breakage mostly affects Debian on the Openmoko
smartphones, since the FreeSmartphone.Org stack heavily depends on E17

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
