i18n a Python app

I have been going spare looking for a tutorial or howto from my pov as a
total beginner to i18n.
I understand that one must use gettext, but there seems to be no good info
about *how* one uses it.
What command line utilities does one use to:
1. make a .pot file
2. make a .mo file
Are there specific Python aspects to the above, or is it all pure Gnu

The docs are not a tutorial and simply list bare functions which does not
provide any insight. I was hoping there'd be some good links or experience
on the list.
