Package: alot
Version: 0.3.6-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch upstream
Control: affects -1 python-gpg python-gpgme

Please use the python-gpg package, which is supplied by GnuPG and
GPGME upstream, rather than the python-gpgme package, which is not
being actively maintained.

This will require some minor changes in the source, which i've already
made patches for upstream:


they don't apply cleanly to 0.3.6, though; they should be easier to
apply if debian updates to a more recent version of alot.
