OK, I have uploaded stdeb 0.4 to http://pypi.python.org/pypi/stdeb/0.4
(Also 0.3.1 to http://pypi.python.org/pypi/stdeb/0.3.1 )

The README.rst file in there should hopefully have enough to get you
started (presuming your setup.py file works).

I'll make an announcement once the dust settles from the hosting
company's computer move. (github is switching to rackspace today.)
