This list is for help with getting packages into Debian. It seems like
you have one that isn't quite a package yet. For help in getting a
package together, see [1]. Since you are a python application, you can
also contact the python-apps-team [2]. I've CC:ed them to this email.
Also, Lucas Nussbaum has been working on a packaging tutorial on
-devel, those slides and examples could be helpful.

Someone at python-apps-team may be interested in helping you make a
package in the first place. You also can file an RFP (request for
package) bug to request that your application be packaged [4].

Once you have a package, you can upload it to somewhere like
http://mentors.debian.net for review and sponsorship.
