pybdist is a set of Python utilities to easily update your project. They can upload to code.google.com or pypi, create .zip or .tar sources, announce on freshmeat or Twitter, create a Debian distribution, build man pages, and install a .desktop icon. All metadata are stored in setup.py. The software parses the release notes and makes sure it's up-to-date (with the current version). It parses the .py file and makes sure its version number is up to date.
Release Notes: The license files that were encoded with rot13 were previously missing from the Debian distribution. This has been fixed.
Release Notes: Missing files were added in MANIFEST.in. The included license texts are now encoded with ROT13 to avoid confusion over which license this package is using. Support for updating the Debian release notes was added.
Release Notes: This release adds a pypi version check, mercurial commit and push checks, and a check for rst errors in the setup description. It spell checks setup.py.
Release Notes: Nosetests were added. The fixup_setup() method was added, which can fill in missing variables as required.
Release Notes: Additional changes to make it work with key-mon.
