Also still missing python-pyaml and python-jinja2

Seems to be missing python-configargparse

This also appears to be missing a dependency on python-six and panics on startup unless you install it

nit: python is part of the base system and does not need to be included as a dependency, running the linter against the built package will complain (it will also have several other complaints, but those are false positives because it doesn't understand Python dependencies).

Looks like python-html5lib is also missing and I missed it in my last comment.

This is missing dependencies for python-pyflakes, pytnon-pycountry, python-kitchen, python-intervaltree, and python-google-i18n-address

Probably missing a dependency.

The website states that it's licensed under the OSI Approved :: BSD License. It is also indicated in the Debian package.

Hmm. Version 2.7.0 has been released, and it doesn't include any LICENSE file any more (other support files are missing from the source package as well). And I have no idea how to report this upstream; the Trac bug tracker is apparently only available to IETF members.

I probably shouldn't just ignore it, but I don't know what I'm supposed to do now. Any ideas?
