Python modules to work with Debian-related data formats

This package provides Python modules that abstract many formats of Debian related files. Currently handled are: * Debtags information (debian.debtags module) * debian/changelog (debian.changelog module) * Packages files, pdiffs (debian.debian_support module) * Control files of single or multiple RFC822-style paragraphs, e.g. debian/control, .changes, .dsc, Packages, Sources, Release, etc. (debian.deb822 module) * Raw .deb and .ar files, with (read-only) access to contained files and meta-information
Package version:0.1.21


README for debian.changelog

to query and manipulate them.

N.B. The API is not stable yet, and so you can expect it to change.

Create a changelog object using the constuctor. Pass it the contents of the 
file if there are some entries, or None to create an empty changelog.
See /usr/share/doc

data. Each module is documented with it's own README file, or some examples.

Currently supported are

  * Debtags data with
  * Debian changelogs with
  * Packages files and the like with
  * .deb files (and .ar files FWIW) via

Some of the modules will use python-apt for some of

The Python deb822 aims to provide a dict-like interface to various rfc822-like
Debian data formats, like Packages/Sources, .changes/.dsc, pdiff Index files,
etc. The benefit is that deb822 knows about special fields that contain
whitespace separated sub-fields, and provides named access to them. For
example, the "Files" field in Source packages, which has three s
