Xpra: Ticket #1990: debian python3-xpra packaging

Looks like you may want to switch to pybuild: debian docs: dh_python.

The changelog for all the debian packaging lives here: log/xpra/trunk/debian

Tue, 16 Oct 2018 18:13:51 GMT - Antoine Martin: status, description changed

Done in r20693, tested on Ubuntu 18.10 and Debian Stretch.

Maybe split the html5 client too?

Lots of packaging pain: r20724 + r20725, r20722, r20702

(dh: what a mazy steaming pile...)

No amount of contortions would make dh do the right thing. It always ended up bundling some icons or systemd file in the xpra package instead of xpra-common, so r20735 (+r20739 fixup) gives up the battle and puts those files there.

As for the scripts, r20736 (+r20738) removes xpra_browser (saves us a man page to maintain) and r20737 tries the other python interpreter if we fail to import xpra with the current (ie default) one.

Still TODO:
