I don't do the Debian packaging myself, but when I check for Debian
packaging of PythonCAD (thanks Cedric!), I get the following:

$ apt-cache show pythoncad

 drafting program.

I do 'apt-get update' every day or two, so this is pretty current.
Looking at the dependencies above things look alright; maybe zlib could
be added but that package is so important to many other programs I'd be
surprised if it isn't already your machine. What happens when you try to
get a Debian-ized installation of PythonCAD like so ...

$ apt-get install pythoncad

Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities
the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind.
