python-distutils-extra (2.18bzr1ubuntu0.1) lucid-security; urgency=low

  * Fix installation of symlinks in data/ dir (LP: #770566):
    - test/auto.py: Add test for installing a symlink which points to a
      nonexisting target directory/file. This reproduces the gist of the
    - test/auto.py: Preserve symlinks in copytree() calls, so that we can
      actually verify that symlinks are preserved properly.
    - test/auto.py: Drop requirement that diff throws no error messages, as it
      will complain about the broken symlink.
    - DistUtilsExtra/auto.py, install_auto: Use os.walk() instead of
      distutils.filelist.findall() to pick out symlinks, as the latter fails
      badly with broken symlinks.
    - DistUtilsExtra/command/build_icons.py: Ignore symbolic links. distutils
      breaks on them when they point to a nonexisting target, and we handle
      them in auto.py.
