I'm happy to announce the relesae of git-buildpackage 0.9.0~exp0:


The main change is the switch to python3.

git-buildpackage (0.9.0~exp0) experimental; urgency=medium

  * Switch to python3 (Closes: #810854)
  * [889cf65] Use pydoctor to generate apidocs since epydoc
    does not work with python3 files
  * [6d8f386] spec: switch to python3 packaging for rpm
    and adjust the smoketest accordingly
  * [6b326e2] pristine-tar: add feature detection
    so we can run tests with older pristine-tar not supporting verify
  * [f4574be] travis: run test with different python versions and run at least
    parts of the tests outside the container

The package is available via Debian experimental:


I haven't updated pypi yet since I first want things to stabilize a
bit. Pypi will be updated with the first upload to Debian unstable. Note
that the 0.8.x series will continue to support Python 2 and will receive
bug fix updates if necessary.

Please give the version a try, especially when using it for rpm
