Python Applications Packaging Team (PAPT)

Task description

Python Applications Packaging Team is a sister of Python Modules Packaging Team. We are taking care of Python applications, i.e. programs written in Python that are not providing public modules.

We are not about packaging the python interpreter (check the pkg-python alioth project for that) or python modules (check the Debian Python Modules Team for that).



If you have an application implemented in Python that you would like to get packaged in Debian, please join this team.

We manage all our packages in the alioth svn repository (see the links above) and use "svn-buildpackage" to build it. This way, anyone from the team can easily work on any package and the sponsor can easily fix some small problems and upload it.

Most common tasks one needs to do are summarized in PAPT_Howto.
