stdeb produces Debian source packages from Python packages via a new
distutils command, sdist_dsc. Automatic defaults are provided for the
Debian package, but many aspects of the resulting package can be
customized via a configuration file. An additional command, bdist_deb,
creates a Debian binary package, a .deb file.

This email announces releases 0.3.2 and 0.4.1.

release 0.4.1 download: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/stdeb/0.4.1
release 0.3.2 download: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/stdeb/0.3.2

Release 0.4.1 adds new features, conveniences and bug fixes to the
recently released, but unannounced 0.4 release. These two releases move
stdeb to use debhelper 7 (and therefore require at least Ubuntu
Intrepid, Debian Lenny, or the use of backports). This use of debhelper
7 allows the auto-generated debian/rules file to be greatly simplified.
stdeb 0.4 also switches to python-support from pycentral. If you do not
need to migrate packages from earlier versions of stdeb, it is
recommended to use the "--pycentral-backwards-compatibility=false"
command-line argument. See the changelog[1] and release notes[2] for
more information.

Release 0.3.2 (and the unannounced 0.3.1) are maintenance releases for
the old-stable branch, which works with older distributions such as
Ubuntu Hardy. These releases added the bdist_deb command. See the
changelog[3] for more information.
