I had a quick look and it looks good.

If the devguide is updated, I will be content with just one line containing one link in my howto.  Currently we have this wiki page: http://wiki.python.org/moin/DebuggingWithGdb  I also remember a ubuntu wiki page with more useful info but can’t find the bookmark.


FTR, I will use these resources: https://pythonconquerstheuniverse.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/debugging-in-python/ and http://www.jeetworks.org/node/99
