I'm just doing a review of this code. A couple of things:
There's been some concern expressed about get_default_maintainer.
Namely, that if debchange changes it's algorithm, it won't be
reflected in this code. It seems like one possible way around that
would be to build a directory with a "debian" directory under it, a
fake "changelog", and then call debchange to write the data out, and
parse it. Too bad there's not a direct hook into debchange to get
Can _formatdate, if email doesn't exist, use rfc822.formatdate()?
Ditto for _parseaddr?
It looks pretty good. However, when trying to build a .deb of my
jotweb2 package, it's failing with:
cp: cannot stat `doc': No such file or directory
dh_installdocs: command returned error code 256
I'm not sure exactly why. I do have a "doc" directory in my main
package directory, but I don't reference to it in my setup.py or
MANIFEST. Adding it to the MANIFEST doesn't seem to help this.
You can try picking up the jotweb code from
ftp.tummy.com:/pub/tummy/jotweb/ and pick up the 1.05 tar file.
