Package: python-celementtree
Version: 1.0.5-9
Severity: serious

Hello, guys.

Current packaging of python-celementtree doesn't allow for it to be
installed with default python being 2.5. This means that either it has
to be dropped for lenny, or fixed so that it is.

I think it should be fixed, because although the default for lenny will
be 2.5, 2.4 will be still supported for all I know. And being supported
means users would expect to be able to run their python2.4 applications
(which may make use of celementtree) without problems.

I'm not quite sure, though, how the packaging would need to change so
that this problem is addressed. Maybe the python-support maintainer
would know best.
