Hello Thanks for the examples (lash does not seem to have switched though). However, looking at them does not help: the package currently in git at git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-multimedia/advene.git compiles perfectly with pysupport. If I remove the DEB_PYTHON_SYSTEM=pysupport line, CDBS does not seem to grok that it is a python package, and does not invoke dh_python2 at all (although it even invokes dh_perl at some stage). What are the heuristics or parameters used by CDBS to determine that it should call dh_python2?
