Done, now it's as py-postresql

Thanks for all your comments, I hope I fixed them all.
Here is the new package:
* Package name : py-postgresql
Version : 1.0.1-1
Upstream Author : James William Pye <email@example.com>
* URL : http://python.projects.postgresql.org/
* License : BSD
Section : python
It builds these binary packages:
python3-postgresql - pgsql driver, cluster management tools, and client
The package appears to be lintian clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 591048
My motivation for maintaining this package is: py-postgresql is a great
project for python3 with an active upstream which can help the grown
of python3 community.
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/p/py-postgresql
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
