Debian Python Policy
Appendix A - Build Dependencies


Build dependencies for Python dependent packages must be declared for every Python version that the package is built for. The python-all-dev should be used when building extensions for any or all Python versions. To build for a specific version or versions, Build-Depend on pythonX.Y-dev.

Some applications and pure Python modules may be able to build-depend only on python or python-all and not require the -dev packages. Packages that do not require the -dev packages must not build-depend on them.

Build-Depend on at least:

     Build-Depends: python2.7
     Build-Depends: python2.6 (>= 2.6-1)
     Build-Depends: python (>= 2.6.6-9)
     Build-Depends: python-all
     
     Build-Depends: python2.7-dev
     Build-Depends: python2.6-dev (>= 2.6-1)
     Build-Depends: python-dev (>= 2.6.6-9)
     Build-Depends: python-all-dev
     Build-Depends: python3-all-dev (>= 3.2)

If you use either python-support or python-central you must additionally Build-Depend on those.
