This is actually not accurate: there is no such thing as a midonet
package. The midonet repo produces 4 or 5 separate packages: agent,
cluster, tools, py client.

I'd like to understand a bit better what exactly you're trying to
achieve. Is it to produce tarballs? All of them? Just

Let's examine the concrete requirements before rushing headlong into
highly disruptive changes like splitting repos. For example, a
py-midonetclient tarball can be built already without having a
separate repo.

Ditto. We already have a mirror repo of pyc for this purpose
https://github.com/midonet/python-midonetclient, synced daily.
