Python Project: Fails to build debian package

Detailed description
1. Create a new project (Use template Python - > Maemo Python Hildon Hello World Project).
2. Select DIABLO_X86 target. 
3. Generate Debian structure. Right - click on each project and select Debian Package - > Create Debian Structure. 
4. Right - click on each project and select Debian Package - > Create Debian Package. 
5. Check if the files 
<pythonhildonhelloworld_1.0_i386.[deb,changes,dsc,tar.gz]> were created on folder previously selected. 

After Step 3 (console): 
 Currently there is no top level Makefile. This may require additional tuning. 
Done. Please edit the files in the debian/ subdirectory now. You should also check that the pythonhildonhelloworld Makefiles
install into $DESTDIR and not in / .

After Step 4 (console) 
:make[1]: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop

- Created Makefile and generator for Python projects
- Updated Python templates

Fixed in commit r2729, 2009-09-09.

I guess we do need to do something here.  It's not going away
from being ignored ;)

Python projects don't have a Makefile at all, so for any Python
project we generate, this issue will arise when using Create
Debian Structure, since the default debian/rules tries to run

So, either we need to:

1) provide a debian/ folder that works (so that creating the
Makefile and/or editing the debian/rules file is not a manual
2) provide a Makefile that (say) provides an empty "make
all" target and a "make install" target which
deploys the application into /usr/lib/python*/site-packages.

(We need the empty 'make all' target because the presence of
a makefile might make the Convert to ... project wizard assign
a make builder, and we want to still do nothing when building
in Eclipse.)

  The feature "Debian Pacakge" helps user to debianize
(create debian structure default), build and install the packages.
But between step 1 and 2 exists some configurations to do manually
by user as described on Debian Manual
(,  topic
2.4, chapter 4, etc..) and we follow these rules because this
configuration is application specific

 So steps described on Test Case Procedure, can only be executed
in this order if you run on "project created from template"
with a pré-defined debian template folder and all configurations
 Otherwhise, you must add to test case a new step between step
3 and 4: Configure debian files. That is the debianize procedure.
