Subject: bittornado-gui: Please drop alternative dependency on python-wxgtk2.6
Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2011 00:18:00 +1300
Package: bittornado-gui
Version: 0.3.18-10
Severity: minor
Usertags: wx2.6to2.8

I'm trying to get packages to migrate from wxwidgets2.6 to wxwidgets2.8
so we can remove the former from the archive - it's no longer supported
upstream, and wxwidgets3.0 is supposed to be out early next year.

Currently bittornado-gui depends on python-wxgtk2.6|python-wxgtk2.8.
However the upstream code doesn't use wxversion to specify any preference
as to the wx versions to use.

This means it will already get run with 2.8 if both versions are
installed and the user hasn't changed the wx.pth alternative setting
from the default.

Since python-wxgtk2.8 is depended on by quite a few packages, the
reality is that many users will have been running with 2.8 for some time
already, so dropping the alternative dependency on python-wxgtk2.6 should
be a painless change.

If you'd like me to NMU this change, please just let me know.
