Great, thanks for responding. I'm a *light* calibre user, but I'd be
happy to help test with a newer dateutil when it becomes available if
that's the direction you are going.
You can just install the
python-dateutil-2.* package and test away ;)
Looking at the list and your annoucement mail again, I wonder if it
might be better to bump python-dateutil to 2.2 again as soon as the
updated python-dateutil15 is available, and simply modify packages
which either explicitly depend on dateutil < 2 or exhibit problems to
depend on python-dateutil15. Proven packagers can do that trivially if
necessary. Otherwise this could drag on for months.
fedocal and python-django-tastypie are the only packages which
explicitly require python-dateutil < 2. If you wish, I can volunteer
file bugs to change the dependency for F21 and rawhide for those two
packages and do it myself after a week if the maintainers don't
respond or are fine with the change (got to use those provenpackager
privs for something :)).
