The only thing to remember is that the patch will have to be Python 2.1 compatible.
Comments in the source code for, e.g. bdist_rpm suggest that things should remain compatible with Python 1.5. Is that right, or is 1.5 no longer supported? Alexandre wrote:

Okay. I'll get the patch together and posted (hopefully by sometime tomorrow), so that it's available for perusal, then I'll post a note on debian-python. I've been pretty careful about reading and obeying debian-policy and python-policy, and have been running the bdist_deb generated packages through lintian for testing. Thanks for the comments! Jeff
