I can start pdb this way:

python -m pdb manage.py test tests

But with ipdb this does not work:

python -m ipdb manage.py test tests     
python: No module named ipdb.__main__; 'ipdb' is a package and cannot be directly executed

ipdb is distributed as an egg : this enforces that it is a package.

At first sight, I see no way to fix this issue.

As I understand, information about how module is searched and executed, when called with -m is described here:
http://docs.python.org/library/runpy.html

It works!

$ bin/python -m ipdb boo.py
> /tmp/ipdb-test/boo.py(1)<module>()
----> 1 print('boo')
      2 
      3 for i in range(3):

ipdb> n
boo
> /tmp/ipdb-test/boo.py(3)<module>()
      2 
----> 3 for i in range(3):
      4     print(i)

ipdb> n
> /tmp/ipdb-test/boo.py(4)<module>()
      2 
      3 for i in range(3):
----> 4     print(i)

ipdb> p i
0
ipdb> c
0
1
2
The program finished and will be restarted
> /tmp/ipdb-test/boo.py(1)<module>()
----> 1 print('boo')
      2 
      3 for i in range(10):

ipdb> exit

$

Thanks!
