I have uploaded version 0.8 into Debian experimental. This is what
should be looked into for Icehouse (and not Sid): packages from Debian
experimental will be uploaded into Debian Sid the day of the release.

Now, I can upload happybase 0.8 to Sid if this doesn't break Havana.

I don't think it was like this since the beginning. I did it because of:

I could go back to the history, and check when we did the >=0.4,<=0.6,
requirement, but without even looking, I'd bet gold against chocolate
that this happened *AFTER* I uploaded 0.7 (because upstream author of
happybase asked for an update, and I did it the same day).

Anyway, since it seems there's a consensus on this:


that's what I did here:

Please approve it.
