DESCRIPTION

              (called by dh_pycentral).

              Show version numbers of supported python versions.   Deprecated,
              use pyversions(1) dh_pycentral, should not be called directly).

       version
              Show the pycentral version.


FILES
       /etc/python/debian_config  is  searched  for  the  attribute overwrite-
       local.    If   set   to    1,    or    True,    existing    files    in
       /usr/lib/pythonX.Y/*-packages  are  overwritten  with symbolic links to
       the pycentral install area. The default is to abort the installation of
       a package, when files already exist. This behaviour may be useful, when
       python libraries were manually  installed  into  this  directory.   The
       attribute byte-compile can be set to a comma separated list of the val-
       ues standard and optimze to indicate how files should be byte-compiled.
