Hi Jeremy,

Thanks and feel free to report bugs against LP for OpenStack-related packages as well.


Thanks Jeremy, that's a good catch, and I'm happy to know. A few
comments here though. 

Having a doc package here is silly, if you consider that the generated
doc is nearly empty. The only thing it will contain is the index.rst
that contains a long description of the package, which is also available
in debian/control, plus where to find upstream source, also described in
debian/control (homepage field), and that's about it.

The Python 3 module is important to me, so I wont remove it, maybe
Canonical should catch up on it.

Will do.

Now, more in general. I don't even understand why it wasn't uploaded to
Debian by the Ubuntu team. Ubuntu people have always claimed they wanted
to collaborate with Debian people for the OpenStack stuff, yet when
there's nobody outside of Canonical to do the work, no upload happens in
Debian, it goes only to Ubuntu. So I'm tempted to say it's you guys
fault here... Time to reboot the Ubuntu workflow for OpenStack? Maybe
Corey should attempt to become a DD and do the work in Debian? If
nothing happens to go that direction, I'm not sure I want to do any
effort either. I've done enough in the past and got frustrated enough.

We've gone above and beyond to collaborate. Prior to this past year we aligned with Debian as much as possible on OpenStack dependencies. In fact I spent a significant amount of time a few cycles back dropping any delta from Ubuntu deps to align with Debian. Unfortunately we can't align on the core packages until we can come to an agreement there. For example, Debian packages don't use pristine-tar and they use debconf prompts to users for configuration - whereas we use pristine-tar and don't prompt users in Ubuntu.  This past year, and possibly part of the year before, Debian development on OpenStack ceased for a long stretch of time until just recently.  That forced us to completely change our workflow to an Ubuntu focus. If we shared all packages that could've been a different story.
