Not sure about the details - would appreciate pointers if anyone else knows.This is true when switching from python-support to python-central, moving the packaging from python-support to dh_python2 does not need that.Adopting dh_python2 on a new package now will ease the future transition (which should happen in Squeeze+1) to the newer helpers generation.
Any references for that?Personally I prefer to keep Python packages backportable at least until Squeeze is out - and if possible without too much trouble until support for Lenny is dropped.
