Greetings Debichemists,

I package a mass spectrometry software called mmass. This software now
ships a private module as a share object that gets build from C code.

It is the first time I package a python package that ships a private
binary module. Would any person listening be kind enough to give a
whirl at the packging ?

In particular, one tricky part is the fact that the private module is
build in a created directory that has a different name each time the
platform changes. So I had to use '*' wildcards during the moving of
the files into the package. On my 386-compatible intel computer the
package works fine, but I wonder if any amd64 user would experience

The packaging material is under git revision at 


browsable at 


Because I had to repackage the software, the tarball produced from the
master branch will actually look like the orig.tar.gz. 

For those having access to alioth.debian.org, please have a look at
the files in 


Thanks for your help, best regards,
