NAME

       dh_python3  -  calculates  Python  dependencies,  adds  maintainer scripts to byte compile
       files, etc.

SYNOPSIS

          dh_python3 -p PACKAGE [-V [X.Y][-][A.B]] DIR [-X REGEXPR]

DESCRIPTION

   QUICK GUIDE FOR MAINTAINERS
          · if necessary, describe supported Python 3 versions  via  X-Python3-Version  field  in
            debian/control,

          · build-depend on python3 or python3-all or python3-all-dev,

          · build   module/application  using  its  standard  build  system,  remember  to  build
            extensions for all supported Python 3 versions (loop over py3versions -vr),

          · install files to the  standard  locations,  add  --install-layout=deb  to  setup.py's
            install command if your package is using distutils,

          · add python3 to dh's --with option, or:

          · include  /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/python-distutils.mk  in  debian/rules  and depend on
            cdbs (>= 0.4.90), or:

          · call dh_python3 in the binary-* target,

          · add ${python3:Depends} to Depends

   NOTES
   dependencies
       dh_python3 tries to  translate  Python  dependencies  from  requires.txt  file  to  Debian
       dependencies.  Use debian/py3dist-overrides or --no-guessing-deps option to override it if
       the guess is incorrect. If you want dh_python3 to generate more strict dependencies  (f.e.
       to     avoid     ABI     problems)     create    debian/python3-foo.pydist    file.    See
       /usr/share/doc/dh-python/README.PyDist for more information. If the pydist  file  contains
       PEP386  flag  or  set  of (uscan like) rules, dh_python3 will make the depedency versioned
       (version requirements are ignored by default).

   private dirs
       /usr/share/foo,  /usr/share/games/foo,   /usr/lib/foo   and   /usr/lib/games/foo   private
       directories are scanned for Python files by default (where foo is binary package name). If
       your package is shipping Python files in some other directory, add another dh_python3 call
       in  debian/rules with directory name as an argument - you can use different set of options
       in this call. If you need to change options (f.e. a list of supported Python  3  versions)
       for  a private directory that is checked by default, invoke dh_python3 with --skip-private
       option and add another call with a path to this directory and new options.

   debug packages
       In binary packages which name ends with -dbg, all files in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/
       directory  that  have  extensions  different  than  so  or  h are removed by default.  Use
       --no-dbg-cleaning option to disable this feature.

   overriding supported / default Python versions
       If you want to override system's list of supported Python  versions  or  the  default  one
       (f.e. to build a package that includes symlinks for older version of Python or compile .py
       files only for given interpreter version), you can do that via DEBPYTHON3_SUPPORTED and/or
       DEBPYTHON3_DEFAULT env. variables.

       Example:  3.2,3.3  limits  the  list of supported Python versions to Python 3.2 and Python
       3.3.

              disable guessing dependencies

       --no-dbg-cleaning
              do not remove any files from debug packages

       --no-ext-rename do not add magic tags nor multiarch tuples to extension file names

       --no-shebang-rewrite
              do not rewrite shebangs

       --skip-private
              don't check private directories

       -v, --verbose
              turn verbose mode on

       -i, --indep
              act on architecture independent packages

       -a, --arch
              act on architecture dependent packages

       -q, --quiet
              be quiet

       -p PACKAGE, --package=PACKAGE
              act on the package named PACKAGE

       -N NO_PACKAGE, --no-package=NO_PACKAGE
