Bug Description

Binary package hint: python-cloudservers

The name 'python-cloudservers' suggests a more generic purpose than the description states:
  "Python bindings for Rackspace's Cloud Servers"

I'd like to see this package renamed for the Lucid release to 'python-rackspace-cloudservers'
to reflect that this is a rackspace specific library, similar to 'libnet-amazon-s3-perl' for

Debian Python Policy (in 2.2) recommends to use python-cloudservers as binary package name

It does, which is why I accepted it into the distro. The point is valid though and it would be nice if upstream addressed it.

why python-rackspace-cloudservers and not python-cloudservers-rackspace?

No idea. I wasn't involved in the renaming.
