Please add ipython to the checkdepends

I just updated python-distributed, and noticed that dask has many dependancies. I think (not sure) that python-scipy, python-pandas and python-pyzmq are all opt-deps, as perhaps is python-numpy (though python-bcolz requires it, so maybe not). Could you check this? I can tell you that in the there are no deps at all.

I just packaged python-fastparquet so that you can export dask dataframes to parquet. Can you add it as an optdepends?

I removed the unittest because the dep list became too long...

Please, see the previous comments. you need to install python-numexpr. it's a bug from pandas (my bug report is there with a very rude dev comments I had to face... given that I won't make the effort to patch pandas' code).

It seems to be better, but still not quite there.
Here is the log:

Sorry for not actually helping to debug and just complaining, by the way....

@aquarix can you check with the new version please?

The install does not pass the tests, hence fails.

the (VERY LARGE!) test trace is here:

With the help of Dask's dev, the conclusion is that the deps of this package are not faulty. It's a problem with pandas. I'm investigating but it seems that they use numexpr (optional dep) as a default engine in their code.

I think python-numexpr is necessary as a dependency.

When installing python-dask, I get the folloging error :

E ImportError: 'numexpr' not found. Cannot use engine='numexpr' for query/eval if 'numexpr' is not installed

Installing python-numexpr prior to installing python-dask solves the issue.
