Only ideas.
"Using Python toolchain for Python modules/apps in Debian?"
Cover stdeb (anything else?), the reasons (if any) political and
technical, why it (or anything else) can not be used instead
unpythonic and unfamiliar make/debhelper stuff. It is not really
helper if no one understands how it works, and it is confusing for
non-C folks.

"Ubuntu, Debian and Python packaging."
Why the difference? The consequences.

"Python policy 2010."
Why not use virtualenv for Packaging applications?
Why stable Python packages should still be fetched from backports (Trac)?
How to use stable Python product compiled manually and still have an
automatic option for upgrade when official backport for the same
version is released?
How to customize/patch local installations of Python packages and sync
them with upstream? (MoinMoin patches, Trac Hacks, Roundup tweaks

"Python 3000"

Any speakers?
