stdeb produces Debian source packages from Python packages via a new
distutils command, sdist_dsc. Automatic defaults are provided for the
Debian package, but many aspects of the resulting package can be
customized. An additional command, bdist_deb, creates a Debian binary
package, a .deb file. The new debianize command builds a debian/
directory directly alongside your setup.py.

Two convenience utilities are also provided. pypi-install will query the
Python Package Index (PyPI) for a package, download it, create a .deb
from it, and then install the .deb. py2dsc will convert a
distutils-built source tarball into a Debian source package.
