Package: python-olpc-datastore
Version: 0.82.1-2

I just tried to install suger related packages my old sid chroot, and
ran into a problem with the upgrade.  The messages make me believe the
python version in the chroot is too old for the source of
python-olpc-datastore.  I got python version 2.5.2-3 installed.  I
suspect this issue might affect other partial upgrades too.  Upgrading
python now to see if the problem go away.
