Make egg metadata information available for Debian packaging

Project description

Tools for introspecting egg-info directories and translating the resulting information into debian format. This information is translated:

  • Setuptools version numbers to debian format that sorts correctly
  • Setuptools package names to debian binary and source package names
  • Setuptools dependencies to debian dependencies

This package provides a script van-pydeb which introspects an installed .egg-info to extract egg dependency information. The package names are converted to their debian equivilant and the dependency information is printed in the format of a dpkg “Depends:” line.


To extract the dependency info of this package, one can:

$ python2.4 build
$ PYTHONPATH=./src python2.4 van-pydeb --depends --egg_info src/vanguardistas.van-pydeb.egg-info
python-setuptools, python-vanguardistas

This information can then used in a debian/rules file as follows:

i=”$$(van-pydeb depends –egg-info debian/$(PACKAGE)/usr/lib/python$*/site-packages/$(EGG_NAME).egg-info)” && echo “setuptools:Depends=$$i” >> debian/$(PACKAGE).substvars

The different methods of using this are:

Give the dependencies (including the extra dependencies) of the package:

van-pydeb depends –egg-info debian/$(PACKAGE)/usr/lip/python$*/$(EGG_NAME).egg-info

The dependencies of an extra:

van-pydeb depends –egg-info debian/$(PACKAGE)/usr/lip/python$*/$(EGG_NAME).egg-info –extra $(EXTRA)

The dependencies of 2 extras:

van-pydeb depends –egg-info debian/$(PACKAGE)/usr/lip/python$*/$(EGG_NAME).egg-info –extra $(EXTRA) –extra $(EXTRA2)

The dependencies of a package excluding the dependencies of extras:

van-pydeb depends –egg-info debian/$(PACKAGE)/usr/lip/python$*/$(EGG_NAME).egg-info –exclude-extra $(EXTRA1) –exclude-extra $(EXTRA2)

1.1.0 (2009-05-26)

  • Obligatory “How could I have done that” release smoothing out documentation bugs and making the command line options more complete.

1.0.0 (2009-05-26)

  • Initial Release.
