[Pkg-utopia-maintainers] Bug#561323: python-coherence: Unnecessary dependency on ‘python-nose’

Package: python-coherence
Version: 0.6.4-4
Severity: minor

A dependency on ‘python-nose’ was introduced to address Debian
bug#489198. However, the bug was actually caused by an unnecessary
error condition in the absence of that library.

The upstream bug <URL:https://coherence.beebits.net/ticket/146> was
fixed, and the code AFAICT no longer causes any problems without the
‘python-nose’ package. The dependency should be removed.
