Packages are resolved in CDBS snippet python-vars.mk.in inherited by all python-* snippets: > # By default the "python2" and "python3" packaging systems are used > # Possible alternatives are "pysupport" or "pycentral" > #DEB_PYTHON_SYSTEM = > > # With "python2" and "python3", all likely packages are used by default > # These are tied together: Set one and default is none for the other > # NB! override needs to be done _before_ including this file! > #DEB_PYTHON2_MODULE_PACKAGES = > #DEB_PYTHON3_MODULE_PACKAGES = > > # With "pysupport" and "pycentral", first likely package in > # 'debian/control' is used by default > # NB! override needs to be done _before_ including this file! > #DEB_PYTHON_MODULE_PACKAGES = The "likely packages" are those named python-* or python3-*, following Debian Python Policy regarding Python module packages. If your package contains an app (not a module) then explicitly list the package name in DEB_PYTHON2_MODULE_PACKAGES and it will be handled by the python2 install helper, or in DEB_PYTHON3_MODULE_PACKAGES for Python3. Originally the old install helpers had same logic, but that got horribly broken during the rushed transition to Python Policy 2 :-( - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
