Pls stop flagging this out of date, just because there is a branch somewhere, which states that there is some other version *available*, which is newer than 1.3.

1.5 and 2.0 and 3.0 and 42 have not been released yet. And last but not least 3.1415926 is also not yet released. So please stop this shit.

Please rename the build() function to package(), as a package() function is required (cf

@R00KIE: Thanks, didn't notice the python-namebench package had been updated to a split package following the naming guidelines (it used to be python2). The namebench now installs third party libraries if you don't explicitly stop it - so that's why no one noticed. I'll switch to back to using the system libraries and update the dependency.

Just wondering if the dependency on python-dnspython shouldn't be a dependency on python2-dnspython.

@megadriver: Thanks, I adopted the package and made the change (although it seems like jinja could be in optdepends).

The python-jinja dependency (which pulls Python 3 in) should be replaced by python2-jinja, I think.
