This is a patch that makes " develop --upgrade" work on my Ubuntu 14.04 laptop. Without it I get several depenency misses.

Hi Alan,

Thanks so much for spending hacking MediaGoblin with us at PyConAU! Was wonderful to meet you. :)

It looks like there have been a couple of changes that have improved the development environment installation process for me, and perhaps you too.

I was just able to flawlessly clone a fresh copy of master, run ./ && ./configure --with-python3 && make, then bin/gmg dbupdate and ./ I realise this is Python 3 of course, and we're running different distributions, but would you mind having another shot at a clean install to see what, of the above patch, is still required for you?

Thanks heaps, hope to catch you again soon!
