It apparently does not work. I just submitted a 0.4.3 release for
Fuerte (only), and got the same cryptic failure message:

Stack [art_vehicle-0.4.3]

There were failures in building the source deb package for this stack.
These failures are generally caused by missing dependencies on target
platforms.  If this stack is not expected to work on all target
platforms, you may be able to disregard this e-mail.

This e-mail is sent regardless of current 'excludes' settings to
assist stack maintainers who are attempting to test compatibility on
new targets.

Stack [art_vehicle-0.4.3] in distro [fuerte] succeeded on the
following OS platforms:
['lucid', 'oneiric']

Stack [art_vehicle-0.4.3] in distro [fuerte] failed to build on the
following OS platforms:

[precise]: stack [art_vehicle] does not have valid debian package
dependencies for release [precise]

The art_vehicle-0.4.3 yaml file looks just like the previous one:


If this is caused by a bug in my code, I still have not discovered what it is.
