[Ros-release] source debian build [rtt_geometry-0.2.0] failed on oneiric

I'm partially confused because it seems someone else is mucking around
and fixing things, as the most recent rtt_geometry sourcedeb job


My guess is that it was failing because orocos_toolchain, which
rtt_geometry depends on, does not have Oneiric packaging.  Hence, the
possible reason for "[oneiric]: stack [rtt_geometry] does not have
valid debian package dependencies for release [oneiric]".  dpkg does
not give good error messages, so we cannot give good error messages

In general, please see my answer here:


tl;dr: the failure reason for sourcedebs is almost *always* a dependency issue.
