Not bla - that's the way it is with Factory ;-)

Python 2.5 is a major update, some packages just cannot be compiled with
it. OpenOffice.org was one of them, and it was fixed quite quickly.
There are other packages that still don't build because of that! Alpha
is Alpha, after all.

Btw. there is https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=209326 about
this - am I allowed to close it? It's not valid any more.

This is another issue. This time it's about db changing its dependencies
without changing the release number at the same time. This is a real
problem because it confuses the package manager. Not just smart, but
actually even YaST - see https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=209407

No, you don't need to do anything because the problem is not caused by
anything on your side. Just wait. The mess with db should go away next
time the complete base system is rebuilt.

I reported all packages which are not installable because of actual bugs
(and maybe one too much which was a synchronization problem, sorry for
that), the rest are synchronization problems which should go away by
themselves.
