[Python-modules-team] Bug#476661: debian ipython dependency

Package: ipython
Verison: 0.8.2.dfsg-2
Severity: normal


arggh, this is because I was nice and installed /usr/bin/ipython2.X
scripts to start ipython with 2.4 or 2.5. I guess I should wrap a shell
script around that or so. Depending on 2.4 and 2.5 is kinda ugly - my fault.
I'm filing this in the BTS, so I won't forget it.

Thanks for the report,
