I'm trying to get freiburg_tools released in groovy. It's a rosbuild stack.

The prerelease test ran fine, although only amd64-precise was run (afaik 
this is currently set like that).

I'm getting a build failure on all versions.

This seems to be the culprit:

./update_version.py debian/changelog.tmp > debian/changelog
bash -c ". setup_deb.sh && ./gen_versioned_debs.py groovy 
freiburg_tools" >> 
Package `ros-groovy-openni-kinect' is not installed and no info is 
Use dpkg --info (= dpkg-deb --info) to examine archive files,
and dpkg --contents (= dpkg-deb --contents) to list their contents.
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "./gen_versioned_debs.py", line 54, in <module>
     main(sys.argv, sys.stdout, os.environ)
   File "./gen_versioned_debs.py", line 41, in main
     raise "Could not find dependency version number"
TypeError: exceptions must be old-style classes or derived from 
BaseException, not str
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1

Full log:

ros-groovy-openni-kinect does not exist, but it is also not used by me. 
I grepped the complete stack and cannot find a reference. It was used in 
the fuerte version, but that shouldn't influence this build, right?
The first appearance within the build-log is also just the error.

I can't figure out why it wants this package and I'm not sure if this is 
something configured wrong on my side or not. How can I find out what is 
causing this?


PS: There were two minor bugs in the system. I'm not sure where to 
report them.

- The TypeError above shouldn't happen.
- The webinterface for prereleases states success and at the same time 
displays a hudson error.
