Package: python2.3
Version: 2.3.5-15ubuntu1
Severity: important

I'm upgrading to edgy, which is getting me the new python structure.
This means I'm trying to remove python2.3 which is trying to run
pycentral rtremove python2.3... but my pycentral doesn't have a
python2.3, so the prerm script is failing because it can't pycentral
rtremove it. I'm not sure if a cycle of trying to upgrade removed it but
not the package already, or if it just was never there... To move past
the problem for me, I just commented out the rtremove line from the
prerm script, since I don't have one. I'm not sure what the 'right' way
to deal with it might be.
