Yeah no worries mate and yes I hate the aggressive stance people sometimes take too. I tend to avoid posting on forums as I hate responses like that.

Python in particular is a fantastic language to learn and it forces you to use good best practices if you aim to follow pep-8. 

Looking at the Control file you have sent I cannot see what is wrong. Hopefully someone more experienced with packaging will be able to see the problem.

I will have another look later if I get chance but I currently have some pressing deadlines.

Sorry I cannot be of more help,

Alan Jenkins

I have found places you can go to ask for help and get treated like a moron because you don't already know. I have looked and gui's and I swear I will never understand! I am however loving python and perl, they make sense to me. My biggest problem is my methods and my way of looking at programming challenges is horrendously out of date. I'm hoping people will correct me as time goes on and maybe, just maybe you guys can drag me into this century.
