Run a mock build
Actual results:

     [exec]   File "/usr/sbin/mock", line 66, in ?
     [exec]     import mockbuild.backend
     [exec]   File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mockbuild/backend.py", line 237

Expected results: Successfull build

Additional info: finally is not valid python24 syntax

Comment 1 Clark Williams 2012-11-21 22:48:26 UTC
I foolishly let python > 2.4 conventions slip into the mock-1.0 branch so I'll need to clean that up. May take me a couple of days though.
