|Subject:||[ANN] stdeb 0.3.2 and 0.4.1|

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. stdeb: http://github.com/astraw/stdeb 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 and release notes for more information.  http://github.com/astraw/stdeb/blob/release-0.4.1/CHANGEL...  http://github.com/astraw/stdeb/blob/release-0.4.1/RELEASE... 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 for more information.  http://github.com/astraw/stdeb/blob/release-0.3.2/CHANGEL...
