As awesome as stdeb is, you should take a look at pkgme:


This is a generic tool that generates packaging, not just for Python, but for
all kinds of simple projects.  It supports a set of backends for
language/project specific details and handles all the common stuff so
individual backends don't need to.  It was discussed at the last UDS, and
James Westby is doing most of the driving right now.  I'm trying to contribute
a few small things, and will be spending any future related effort on pkgme.

Python is one of the built-in backends.
