This package provides some tools to produce Debian packages from Python
packages via a new distutils command, sdist_dsc. Automatic defaults are
provided for the Debian package, but many aspects of the resulting package can
be customized via a configuration file.
* pypi-install will query the Python Package Index (PyPI) for a
package, download it, create a .deb from it, and then install
the .deb.
* py2dsc will convert a distutils-built source tarball into a Debian
source package.
