Distutils commands for working with Launchpad and Bazaar.

## Project description

lpdistutils
===========

This is a set of extra commands for distutils/setuptools that allow working with
Launchpad and Bazaar. They are similar to the "register" and "upload" commands
provided by distutils for working with pypi.

Commands
--------

* lpregister - register the project on Launchpad. This takes the information from
setup.py and creates you a Launchpad project based on that information.

In addition, if you are working in a bzr branch then that branch will be pushed
to Launchpad, and set as the development focus of the new project.

command you run it with the command to build the artefact you wish to upload, e.g.::

python setup.py --command-packages lpdistutils sdist lpupload --sign

If you wish to upload to PYPI too you can do this with::

* bzrtag - this sets a bzr tag based on the version number in setup.py, so you
can use it as part of your release process.

Usage
-----

You need to tell distutils/setuptools to load the commands provided by lpdistutils, and
you do this with the --command-packages option to setup.py.

::

python setup.py --command-packaegs lpdistutils

This must be the first thing passed.

It is possible to enable it in the distutils config files_

.. _distutils config files: http://docs.python.org/install/index.html#distutils-configuration-files

like::

[global]
command-packages = lpdistutils
