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 release 0.4.2.


Release 0.4.2 is a bugfix release fixing a couple issues. The most
significant fix is that if a package specified "XS-Python-Version" in
stdeb.cfg, the binary package wouldn't install the Python packages.

No backwards incompatible changes were made with this release.
