[ros-release] Releasing with dependency package missing on one distro

So I am learning how to release ros packages with bloom.

I tried to release a package ( flask_ext_catkin ) that depends on
Saucy doesn't have a package for python alembic, so I skipped it in the
rosdep declaration.

But this seems to break my release&builds for all debian based distros.

Q : How can I get my release&builds to work for the debian based distros
that have the package defined ( >trusty ) ?

Thanks a lot !
