Package: salt-common
Version: 2016.11.2+ds-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I just did a minimal installation of Debian to configure it completely
using salt.

I was following the instructions for a masterless salt setup [1], except
for installing `salt-common` instead of using their recommended
bootstrapping script.

[1] https://docs.saltstack.com/en/2016.11/topics/tutorials/quickstart.html

After putting a minimal configuration in place, I invoked `salt-call`
with the appropriate arguments, but it failed with this being the last
two lines displayed:

      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/salt/transport/frame.py", line 7, in <module>
          import msgpack
    ImportError: No module named msgpack

So I installed `python-msgpack` and everything works fine. It looks like
that dependency should be added to the `salt-common` package.

Thank you very much,
