Remove easy-deb mention. There are real official .debs now, and the easy-deb approach was never fully explored.

    33Unlike other Linux distributions, Debian systems use a strict package management system. This system "owns" certain directories. If a user installs files into the directories, he is likely to corrupt the system. Unfortunately, the current TurboGears install instructions for *nix systems will override filesystem permissions, deposit files ino those directories, and corrupt your Debian system (possibly quite badly!). This is listed as bug #273.

    5 Instead of those directions, there are two solutions for installing TurboGears. You can do it through the Debian package system, by trying to create a Debian package representing the python module (method 1). Or you can set up configurations so that the python packaging system will respect the boundaries required by Debian packaging system (method 2).

    7 The second method is recommended. The easy-deb below is not included in Debian stable, seems fairly new, and it will probably be a while before a best practice emerges for integrating the python packaging system with Debian's package management.
