[Python-apps-team] Bug#529803: mercurial: fails to install

Package: mercurial
Version: 1.2.1-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

mercurial-1.2.1-2 does not exist for i386, although
mercurial-common-1.2.1-2 does.  Given that mercurial depends on the
identical version of mercurial-common, this prevents installation.

I saw the changelog, as reported by apt-listchanges, after mercurial
and mercurial-common were upgraded on my amd64 box; the all-arch
upload seems not to have worked.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: squeeze/sid
  APT prefers unstable
  APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
Architecture: i386 (i686)

Kernel: Linux (SMP w/1 CPU core)
Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8, LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 (charmap=UTF-8)
Shell: /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash
