Package: src:omniorb-dfsg
Version: 4.1.3-1
Severity: important
Tags: sid wheezy
User: debian-python at lists.debian.org
Usertags: pycentral-deprecation

The package build-depends on python-central, which should be
removed in time for the wheezy release.  dh_python2 should be used instead.
dh_python2 installs into the same locations as pycentral, but
avoids the creation and removal of symlinks at package installation
and removal time, making the upgrade process more robust and faster.
dh_python2 guarantees the installation into the same recommended site
directory used by dh_pycentral, into which anybody can install without
being forced to use any packaging helper tools.
Please find suggestions and help for the change at
Please file bug reports against dh_python2 for the python-dev package.
Consider waiting with this change until python2.7 is a supported
python version in unstable.  Test packages can already be built
in experimental (having the python-* packages from experimental installed).
