There was already a short discussion about this with Torsten Alteholz
(ftp-master@d.o) and Bastian Blank (waldi) a month ago; see


for the thread. The python3-blends package is a (first version of) a
Python package that may deal with Blends -- to be used by blends-dev,
but in future also to generate the Blends webpages (and maybe other
uses). Depending on our experiences and further development, it would be
a candidate to be included in python3-debian.

So the idea is to keep it separate and to follow the Python policy in
naming, directory layout etc. Making things modular is IMO a good thing.

Best regards
