[Pkg-linaro-lava-devel] Bug#755661: django-testscenarios: Please ensure it works with Django 1.7

Source: django-testscenarios
Version: 0.7.3-2
Severity: important
User: python-django at packages.debian.org
Usertags: django17


your package django-testscenarios depends on python-django. As you might
know, Django 1.7 will be soon available and as each new upstream major
version, it brings many changes, some of them which are backwards
incompatible (after a deprecation period covering 2 major versions):

We intend to upload Django 1.7 to unstable as soon as it is available
because we really want the latest version in jessie and the freeze is
approaching fast. In preparation of that, I have uploaded a release
candidate in experimental.

Please test your package against Django 1.7 in experimental. If a new
upstream version of your package is required, please package it now.
If you can't upload it to unstable because it only works with Django 1.7,
feel free to upload it to experimental too.

If the current package works fine, please close this bug (or retitle it as
a suggestion to implement Python 3 support and drop its severity to
wishlist[1]). If it's broken, please tag it as confirmed. If it's not
broken, but would benefit from further work, please tag it as confirmed
but reduce the severity.

If you have experimental in your sources.list you can install the latest
version easily:
$ sudo apt-get install -t experimental python-django python3-django

[1] We have recently added Python 3 support with the addition of
python3-django. Consider doing the same if your package is a Django

Thank you for your help!

PS: I will raise the "confirmed" bugs that are still of severity
"important" to "serious" once we upload Django 1.7 to unstable.
