Given than Ian is the upstream author of the module, he is of course
welcome in the team if he so wishes. Ian, just give me your alioth login
if you are interested.

Sure, but I am not a debian developer.. should I create a guest account on alioth?

I have packaged versions for python2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4, and I've
made them available in an apt repository on excess.org.

I think a better option would be to use python-support to make a single
deb that supports all python versions. I intend to do that once urwid
enters debian. More info here:

I suggest on the contrary to do that before it enters Debian so that the
ftpmaster do not create packages that will disappear shortly after and so
that you don't have an upgrade path to handle.

My understanding of debian packaging is quite limited. I tried to create packages the same way I saw another python library packaged. If the python-urwid package that enters the debian repositories is different than what I have created, how do I transition people that are using my repository to the new python-support way? Do I even have to?

I would like to continue to support people that aren't running debian unstable with packages for python2.1 (and python2.4 for ubuntu)
