python-defaults (2.7.3-4+deb7u1) stable; urgency=low
* Add symlink for /usr/bin/python2 (Closes: #723182)
- This was inadvertently omitted during Wheezy development, but is already
fixed in jessie (the fix proposed here is identical)

python-defaults (2.7.3-4) unstable; urgency=low
[ Dmitry Shachnev ]
* Revert previous prerm/postrm changes:
- prerm is never called as `prerm purge`.
- configuration files shouldn't be deleted on package remove.
2012-10-21 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python-defaults (2.7.3-3) unstable; urgency=low
[ Piotr Ożarowski ]
* dh_python2:
- no longer sensitive to trailing slash in private dir names
(closes: #686358)
- ignore /usr/bin/python3 shebangs in all packages, not just in
python3-* ones
- generates correct "python (<< 2.X)" dependencies for packages with
private Python extensions (typo fixed)
* fix parsing DEBPYTHON_SUPPORTED env. variable
(versions should be separated using comma, as in debian_defaults
config file)
[ Dmitry Shachnev ]
* debian/python.{pre,post} Handle purge command the same way as
remove (thanks to Mitsuya Shibata for the bug report)
2012-07-26 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python-defaults (2.7.3-2) unstable; urgency=low
* dh_python2: ignore empty files while trying to normalize shebangs
(Closes: #680793)
* Fix lack of python-imaging in pydist/dist_fallback
- Add python-imaging override to pydist/
- pydist/dist_fallback: Regenerate to add python-imaging (which wasn't
recognized before due to .pth file) along with a few automatic
2012-06-30 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python-defaults (2.7.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Piotr Ożarowski ]
* dh_python2:
- remove even more \.so.* dangling symlinks, thanks to Stefano
Rivera for providing a test case
- rewrite shebangs by default (disable via --no-shebang-rewrite),
+ "/usr/bin/env python*" → "/usr/bin/python*"
+ "/usr/local/bin/python foo" → "/usr/bin/python foo"
+ "/usr/bin/python2" → "/usr/bin/python"
- new --shebang option to replace all shebangs in bin dirs
(example: --shebang /usr/bin/python2.6)
- no longer generates python2.X | python2.Y depenendies for public modules
(Closes: 625740)
- translate Python version numbers into Debian ones for those
require.txt items that have a pydist file with (uscan like) rules
or PEP386 flag (Closes: #653740)
* Improve dh_python2 manpage a bit, add information about cleaning debug
packages (Closes: #653741)
* pyversions, dh_python2, pycompile: allow to override system's list of
supported Python versions via DEBPYTHON_SUPPORTED and default Python
version via DEBPYTHON_DEFAULT env. variables
* Debhelper's python2 sequence now inserts dh_python2 before dh_installinit
(closes: 670418)
[ Scott Kitterman ]
* Bump upstream version to match current unstable/wheezy python2.7 version
