dh_pypy - calculates PyPy dependencies, adds maintainer scripts to byte compile files,


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


· build-depend on pypy and dh-python,

· add ${pypy:Depends} to Depends

· build module/application using its standard build system,

· install files to the standard locations,

· add pypy to dh's --with option, or:

· call dh_pypy in the binary-* target,

dh_pypy tries to translate Python dependencies from the requires.txt file to Debian
dependencies. In many cases, this works without any additional configuration because
dh_pypy comes with a build-in mapping of Python module names to Debian packages that is
periodically regenerated from the Debian archive. By default, the version information in
the Python dependencies is discarded. If you want dh_pypy to generate more strict
dependencies (e.g. to avoid ABI problems), or if the automatic mapping does not work
correctly for your package, you have to provide dh_pypy with additional rules for the
translation of Python module to Debian package dependencies.

For a package pypy-foo that depends on a package pypy-bar, there are two files that may
provide such rules:

1. If the pypy-foo source package ships with a debian/pypy-overrides file, this file is
used by dh_pypy during the build of pypy-foo.

2. If the pypy-bar source package ships with a debian/pypy-bar.pydist file (and uses
dh_pypy), this file will be included in the binary package as
/usr/share/dh-python/dist/pypy/pypy-bar. During the build of pypy-foo, dh_pypy will
then find and use the file.

Both files have the same format described in /usr/share/doc/dh-python/README.PyDist. If
all you want is to generate versioned dependencies (and assuming that the pypy-bar package
provides the pybar Python module), in most cases it will be sufficient to put the line
pybar pypy-bar; PEP386 into either of the above files.

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_pypy 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 for a private directory that is checked by
default, invoke dh_pypy 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/pypy/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 PyPy versions
If you want to override system's list of supported PyPy versions or the default one (f.e.
to build a package that includes symlinks for older version of PyPy or compile .py files
only for given interpreter version), you can do that via DEBPYPY_SUPPORTED and/or
DEBPYPY_DEFAULT env. variables.
