  • I'm back from a business trip and looking at this. Is nose-py needed to run (Depends:) or only for the tests? I'll excise it from Depends: before checkin unless it's really needed. Otherwise looks good.

  • nose-py only required for the tests (what is the correct why of putting a "test dependency" in the info file?)

  • If a pkg is only needed for tests, the InfoScript::TestDepends field is sufficient. During a binary install (from a prebuilt .deb), fink looks at the Depends field to make sure they are satisfied. If building locally, the BuildDepends field is further parsed for the list of needed dependencies. And if building with ' -m ', then the TestDepends field is also parsed. Lastly, RuntimeDepends is only parsed during an actual deb install, not during a build.

    So in this case for nose-py, TestDepends is sufficient. I've gone ahead and checked this into CVS (minus the extra nose-py in Depends:). Thanks for the submission.

    ps. thanks for teaching me the python -B trick for .pyc files
