Hi Tim,

I was having the same error in openSUSE OBS about gui/wxpython and it is 
now fixed in svn (branch_64).

I see that there is a direct mirror from subversion to bazaar in LP. 
This should trigger a build on every new commit through the recipe, but 
is this really needed? Perhaps this should be done weekly.

I had a look at the debian files in case I could create a grass7 (like 
the one for openSUSE) but the rule file is very complicated. Is it due 
to lintian checks?
