Bug Description

Binary package hint: python-psycopg2

This dependency was fixed in the debian version, but not yet in edgy. You can't use psycopg2 without the package, and on a clean install (rc version, all updates) it is not installed by default.

Found the debian reference by using google on the following mailinglist message:

Edgy has python-psycopg2 ( which doesn't depend upon python-egenix-mxdatetime

Edgy does have python-egenix-mxdatetime (2.0.6ubuntu1-1ubuntu5) but as it's not a dependency python-psycopg2 won't install this by default.

This is a debian bug which was fixed in release which is dated 3 October 2006.

This bug means that psycopg2 doesn't work in edgy and is fixed by syncing from Debian. The updated version only includes a fix for this bug which is to add a dependency on python-egenix-mxdatetime.

Requesting approval from the motu stable releases update team for Edgy.
