 Had you checked compatibility between 0.1.1 and 0.2.1 with code?
 Or you had investigated onlyb documentation?
 It seems that 0.2.1 has no "pynotify" string.
 And 0.1.1 provides pynotify module.
 Anyway, inputmethod/ibus does not work with 0.2.1 of py-notify
 because py-notify package does not provide pynotify module.
 Please put 0.2.1 into new package or create py-notify01 for
 Thank you.
