debian packages

P: n/a
With redhat deciding go make some real money from the fruits of their
labour, management decided to try out debian. This leads me to my
possible future problem: is there a way to create debian (deb) packages
using distutils (or any other python extensiom) for python scripts?
I used to build RPMS using distutils and custom spec files.

I don't know whether this is possible but you can always create an
rpm-package and use afterwards the 'alien' tool to transform the rpm-file
into a deb-file.

Hope this hint helps...

It is possible, and many python-related debian packages are built
using distutils. For example, have a look at python2.3-pam package.
