python3-defaults (3.2.3-6) unstable; urgency=low
[ Piotr Ożarowski ]
* dh_python3
- ignore empty files while trying to normalize shebangs 
- mention the right file (debian/py3dist-overrides) while warning about
guessed dependency - thanks to Sebastian Ramacher for the patch
(Closes: #685067)
- fix generating dependencies when maximum version is specified
(Closes: #687060)
* fix parsing DEBPYTHON3_SUPPORTED env. variable
(versions should be separated using comma, as in debian_defaults
config file)
* py3versions, debpython: close previously opened files - thanks to Dmitry
Shachnev for the patch (Closes: #686587)

[ Barry Warsaw ]
* py3clean: Don't remove everything in the __pycache__ directory for
system site package directories. Prevents bogus cleaning of unrelated
*.pyc files. Original patch by Dmitry, with review, clean up, small
modifications, and additional comments by Barry. (Closes: #685167)
[ Barry Warsaw ]
* dh_python3: Rework calculation of extension tags to add support for
Python 3.3's different suffixes, and to allow for unadorned .so files
to assume they are built with the default Python 3 version.
Closes: 672178
* README.derivatives: It is no longer necessary to edit
debian/ since the values are taken from
debian_defaults. Also added some text on how to separate the
specification when multiple versions are supported.
* Makefile: Fix the nosetests3 command. Closes: 690259
2012-08-02 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python3-defaults (3.2.3-5) unstable; urgency=low
* dh_python3:
- do not rewrite /usr/bin/python{,2.*} shebangs
(Closes: #683294, /me still thinks it was a feature, not a bug)
- parsing debian/control fields is now case insensitive
* Change source format from native to 3.0 (native)
2012-07-12 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python3-defaults (3.2.3-4) unstable; urgency=high
* py3clean: really close #681389
2012-07-12 - Piotr Ożarowski <>
python3-defaults (3.2.3-3) unstable; urgency=high
* Yet another update in SHEBANG_RE to handle even more cases
* test4 fixed to catch missing /usr/bin/python → /usr/bin/python3 rewrites
* py3clean: accept --package *and* directory name at the same time
(change missed in -1 upload, closes: #681389)
* Bump minimum required python3 version to 3.2.3-3~ in packages with .py files
(due to --package option that is added to py3compile/py3clean in rtupdate
2012-07-11 - Scott Kitterman <>
python3-defaults (3.2.3-2) unstable; urgency=high
* Urgency high for grave bug because this will cause other packages to
* Correct SHEBANG_RE in debpython/ to not capture the 3 from python3
(Closes: #681235)
