Package: lava-coordinator
Version: 0.1.6-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

The ‘python-lockfile’ package in Debian has released in Debian Sid an
upstream version with an incompatible API to previous Debian releases.

This change was described in 2014-11, for example at
This bug report is part of a mass bug report announced 2015-06-05
<URL:lists.debian.org/msgid-search/85lhfzhud6.fsf at benfinney.id.au>.

Packages using the API in ‘lockfile’ prior to version 0.9 will fail
with the current ‘python-lockfile’ in Debian Sid.

Please do the following to resolve this bug:

* Work with your package's upstream to have the code support
  ‘lockfile’'s current API, if it doesn't already. Encourage them to
  release a new version with that support.

* Upload a new release of this package with a versioned dependency on
  “python-lockfile (>= 0.9)”.
