Python Applications Packaging Team (PAPT)
Python Applications Packaging Team is a sister of Debian Python Modules Team. We are taking care of Python applications, i.e. end user programs written in Python that usually do not provide public modules. We are not about packaging Python modules or Python interpreter.
IRC Channel: #debian-python
Entropy Tracker : http://python-apps.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/pet.cgi
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 howto.
