pypi-install (python-stdeb package)


Thanks to Andrew Straw and his stdeb (since 0.5) we now have a simple
and fast way to test Python modules (that are not packaged for Debian
yet) with other packages on the system (to f.e. check if module is worth
packaging or to have something less broken to recommend to all these
users who tend to destroy their systems using `sudo easy_install ...`):

 $ pypi-install Foo

will download Foo package from pypi.python.org, create Debian package
and install it (i.e. dpkg will know about these files).

PS If you didn't know it: stdeb (/usr/bin/py2dsc to be exact) produces a
really nice templates for Debian source packages with Python modules.
