After your mail I tried to package iguanaIR but I failed. While everything
else seems OK, I can't package the python bindings. Is there any documentation
on how python bindings are supposed to be packaged? I've looked some other
packages and they seem to do some hocus pocus for this.
I understand that there should be one package (with the bindings) per python
version but I don't know which python versions I'm supposed to package for and
how to incorporate this to CDBS (iguanaIR isn't using distutils).
While I'm not as inderested as before and I somehow lack the time, I'm willing
to complete the packaging and maintain the package. I've found the creators of
iguanaIR to be helpfull and they look forward for a debian package so any bugs
etc will most probably be handled by them. Since the releases of iguanaIR
software are not frequent this will not be very time consiming.
So, if you can help me with the python bindings packaging we can upload this
soon. I'm currently using CDBS for the packaging.
