Here's my current long description:
Trove is Database as a Service for Openstack. It's designed to run
entirely on OpenStack, with the goal of allowing users to quickly and
easily utilize the features of a relational database without the burden
of handling complex administrative tasks. Cloud users and database
administrators can provision and manage multiple database instances as
needed. Initially, the service will focus on providing resource
isolation at high performance while automating complex administrative
tasks including deployment, configuration, patching, backups, restores,
and monitoring. Trove is designed to support a single-tenant database
within a Nova instance. There is no restrictions on how Nova is
configured, since Trove interacts with other OpenStack components purely
through the API.
Individual binary packages also have description of what they do.
Sorry that I was careless and wrote the ITP too fast. Though you can be
sure I wouldn't upload the package with such a non-decriptive description.

P.S: Even if I'm spending the most of my days on packaging OpenStack for
Debian, it's still too big for me alone, and I would accept some help...
Many wrote they would, but so far, there aren't so many commits besides
mine in our Git. I believe I'll have the core of OpenStack ready for the
release date, though I'm not 100% sure I will have Marconi, TrippleO and
Trove (I'm working hard so that it happens on time).
