The problem is that Ubuntu doesn't support Python 2.6 anymore (only
2.7), therefore "argparse" got removed and "sorl-thumbnail" was sitting
in dependency wait on "python2.6-argparse" indefinitely.
If replacing "python2.6-argparse" with "python-argparse" is the wrong
solution, do you have a better solution on how to make it build in
Ubuntu? Or should the package get removed completely due to the indirect
dependency on python2.6?
Thanks for your help.
