[Openstack-devel] Bug#653644: dh_python2 generates suboptimal python-argparse dependencies

Package: python
Version: 2.7.2-9
Severity: normal

The generated dependencies for python-keystoneclient (in unstable) are:
Depends: python2.7 | python2.6, python (>= 2.6.6-7~), python (<< 2.8), python-httplib2, python-argparse, python-prettytable

argparse was included in python2.7

The unconditional dependency on python-argparse always pulls in python2.6

The correct argparse dependency would be
   python (>= 2.7) | python-argparse
