Thanks but no thanks. I need to have the python namespace (eg, the
egg-info and such) to match the package name, otherwise there will be no
correct automatic ${python:Depends} substitution.

FYI, the message was more addressed to the OpenStack community, rather
than -devel...

Well, I wonder how the Trove name was chosen. Clearly, it was done
without any good policy in place.

It sure isn't. Quantum -> Neutron was hell for everyone. Though luckily,
Trove isn't that big (yet).

Same over here. Though for this not to happen again, I think the
OpenStack projects needs to set some rules for project name choice.
