       Build-Depends if there's none (closes: 819353)

       methods to detect it failed (closes: 791433)

     - remove (just before install stage) egg-info dirs generated in build_dir
       during test stage (closes: 803242)
   * Move libdpkg-perl from Depends to Suggests. python3 still depends on
     dh-python and we don't want to pull Perl when python3 is intalled

dh-python (2.20150826) unstable; urgency=medium

   * dh_python{2,3} and dh_pypy: skip packages with private modules that
     do not have apropriate ${*:Depends} substvar in Depends
     (-p/-N in debian/rules to select the right package is no longer needed,
     now you can select the right tool by adding substvar)
   * add support for --ubuntu (requires
     python3-distro-info package, thanks to James Page for original patch,

dh-python (1.20140511-1) unstable; urgency=medium

   [ Piotr Ożarowski ]

     (and thus do not require all interpreter versions to be installed while
     building source package outside build environment, closes: 737091)
   * dh_python2: no longer moves files to /usr/share/pyshared if there's only
     one supported Python 2.X version and doesn't create /usr/lib/pyshared

   * Test Python 2.7 only in test203 if /usr/bin/python2.6 is missing

   * Generate dependencies for minimum required interpreter version that are
     satisfied by alpha/beta/rc releases (i.e. generate ">= X.Y~")
