You seem to be mixing up your examples. To test publisher, try something 
like this:

<Directory /var/www/documentroot>
    AddHandler python-program .py
    PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
    PythonDebug On

Create test.py:

def hello(req):
     x = "Hello, world!"
     return x

Restart apache (if you modified httpd.conf), point your browser to:


and see if that works.
