Python deb-pkg-tools 8.3

deb-pkg-tools is a Python module for managing Debian packages. It provides for inspecting, building, checking and signing packages, or managing repositories. deb-pkg-tools thereby bases its API on manual meta data parsing or wrapping calls to native tools, such as dpkg, dpkg-deb, lintian, apt-get, apt-ftparchiv, gzip, fakeroot, gpg, dpkg-scanpackages.
