NAME
       dh_pypy - calculates PyPy dependencies, adds maintainer scripts to byte
       compile files, etc.

SYNOPSIS
          dh_pypy -p PACKAGE [-V [X.Y][-][A.B]] DIR [-X REGEXPR]

DESCRIPTION
   QUICK GUIDE FOR MAINTAINERS
          o build-depend on pypy and dh-python,

          o add ${pypy:Depends} to Depends

          o build module/application using its standard build system,

          o install files to the standard locations,

          o add pypy to dh's --with option, or:

          o call dh_pypy in the binary-* target,

   NOTES
   dependencies
       dh_pypy tries to translate Python dependencies  from  the  requires.txt
       file  to Debian dependencies. In many cases, this works without any ad-
       ditional configuration because dh_pypy comes with a build-in mapping of
       Python module names to Debian packages that is periodically regenerated
       from the Debian archive. By default, the  version  information  in  the
       Python  dependencies is discarded. If you want dh_pypy to generate more
       strict dependencies (e.g. to avoid ABI problems), or if  the  automatic
       mapping  does  not work correctly for your package, you have to provide
       dh_pypy with additional rules for the translation of Python  module  to
       Debian package dependencies.

       For  a  package  pypy-foo that depends on a package pypy-bar, there are
       two files that may provide such rules:

       1. If the pypy-foo source package ships  with  a  debian/pypy-overrides
          file, this file is used by dh_pypy during the build of pypy-foo.

       2. If  the  pypy-bar source package ships with a debian/pypy-bar.pydist
          file (and uses dh_pypy), this file will be included  in  the  binary
          package as /usr/share/dh-python/dist/pypy/pypy-bar. During the build
          of pypy-foo, dh_pypy will then find and use the file.

       Both    files     have     the     same     format     described     in
       /usr/share/doc/dh-python/README.PyDist.  If all you want is to generate
       versioned dependencies (and assuming that the pypy-bar package provides
       the  pybar  Python  module), in most cases it will be sufficient to put
       the line pybar pypy-bar; PEP386 into either of the above files.

   private dirs
       /usr/share/foo,      /usr/share/games/foo,       /usr/lib/foo       and
       /usr/lib/games/foo  private directories are scanned for Python files by
       default (where foo is binary  package  name).  If  your  package  ships
       Python  files  in some other directory, add another dh_pypy call in de-
       bian/rules with directory name as an argument - you can  use  different
       set  of  options in this call. If you need to change options for a pri-
       vate  directory  that  is  checked  by  default,  invoke  dh_pypy  with
       --skip-private  option  and add another call with a path to this direc-
       tory and new options.

   debug packages
       In  binary  packages  which  name  ends  with  -dbg,   all   files   in
       /usr/lib/pypy/dist-packages/  directory  that have extensions different
       than so or h are removed by default. Use  --no-dbg-cleaning  option  to
       disable this feature.

   overriding supported / default PyPy versions
       If you want to override system's list of supported PyPy versions or the
       default one (f.e. to build a package that includes symlinks  for  older
       version  of  PyPy  or compile .py files only for given interpreter ver-
       sion), you can do that  via  DEBPYPY_SUPPORTED  and/or  DEBPYPY_DEFAULT
       env. variables.
