So I found a program written in Python. I cloned the Repository. So now how to I compile it into a package?
p.s. the package is DocuCanvas from github.com
Is it your first attempt at packaging a piece of software for Ubuntu? Then I'd suggest looking at something else. If that needs to be a python application then at least choose something that uses Distutils (it usually will have file setup.py in the root directory).
Anyway, for how to package DocuCanvas see http://wiki.debian.org/DjangoPackagingDraft, Packaging Django Projects for Debian Using Autotools, and Create a Debian package for your Django application
