deb-pkg-<modulename> directory.
To compile the source package use the standard debian tools (debuild or
"fakeroot debian/rules binary")

update-pypi: this script is used to enable and disable installed egg (you can
enable/disable all eggs
ing the removing the All package). Enabled eggs are on sys.path, disabled eggs
must be pkg_resource.require() before you can import from them.

To install module "graph":

$ easy-deb -v2.4 graph -D /tmp/
$ cd /tmp/deb-pkg-graph0.4/graph-0.4
$ fakeroot debian/rules binary
$ sudo dpkg -i ../*.deb

$ update-pypi -a graph
