[Python-modules-team] Bug#705329: python-gnutls: Does not use gcry_check_version()

Package: python-gnutls
Version: 1.2.4-1
Severity: normal


Afaict python-gnutls does not initialize libgcrypt correctly, it does
not use gcry_check_version(). Ubuntu has a patch for this, see

I am not sure it is 100% correct, it seems to be a strange coincidence
that python-gnutls 1.2.4 would require libgcrypt >= 1.2.4.
