DH_PYTHON3(1)							 DH_PYTHON3(1)

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

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

	  · 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

       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  differ‐
       ent  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.

	      show program's version number and exit

       -h, --help
	      show help message and exit

	      disable guessing dependencies

	      do not remove any files from debug packages

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

	      do not rewrite shebangs

	      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
	      do not act on the specified package

       -V VRANGE
	      specify list of supported Python 3 versions.  See	 py3compile(1)
	      for examples

       -X REGEXPR, --exclude=REGEXPR
	      exclude  items that match given REGEXPR. You may use this option
	      multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.

	      compile all files from given private directory in postinst/rtup‐
	      date not just the ones provided by the package (i.e. do not pass
	      the --package parameter to py3compile/py3clean)

	      translate given requirements into Debian	dependencies  and  add
	      them   to	 ${python3:Depends}.  Use  it  for  missing  items  in

	      translate given requirements into Debian	dependencies  and  add
	      them to ${python3:Recommends}

	      translate	 given	requirements  into Debian dependencies and add
	      them to ${python3:Suggests}

	      translate requirements from given file(s) into Debian  dependen‐
	      cies and add them to ${python3:Depends}

	      use given command as shebang in scripts

	      do not translate shebangs into Debian dependencies
