- where is the ITP for this package?! if you don't know what it is and
why you need to file one before packaging something, google is your
- thanks for uploading -3 without updating this thread (so link in the
only email don't work)...
- more about it, why do you upload three revision for a NEW package?
just merge all the changelog in -1, and close there the ITP!
- consider joining the python modules team and maintain the package
- why do you name the source package python3-postgresql? it's wrong to
call it with the version of the interpreter (it's correct to name the
*binary* package that way, tho); just don't diverge from upstream and
call it py-postgresql
- remove XB-Python-Version , it's not used
- use priority optional, no need to be extra
- remove all the useless comments "# Please chose a license for your
packaging work. If the program you package"
- are you sure BSD (upstream) and GPL-3 (packaging) licenses can work
together? consider they are distributed together, and you might need
to change the upstream code: can you do that freely? hint: it's
usually safe to choose the packaging license the same as upstream.
- why do you override dh_auto_build? doesn't dh already do all the
needful to build the package for all supported versions? same goes for
dh_install and dh_clean.
- remove useless comments
- once again, remove useless comments
