Right. py-* packages are for Python 2.4. py25-* packages are for
Python 2.5. Python 2.5 packages should not depend on Python 2.4
packages, so this is a bug in py25-dot. Please file a ticket in the
issue tracker and assign or Cc it to the port's maintainer. py25-dot
was just created from py-dot in r34410 so this dependency was
If a py25-parsing does not exist, and that's needed for py25-dot,
then it will need to be created from py-parsing.
