Thanks for raising this.

Beyond its limited activity, another issue is that it's not an official
project while its name make it a "default choice" for a lot of users
(hard to blame them for thinking that
http://git.openstack.org/cgit/openstack/python-openstacksdk is not the
official Python SDK for OpenStack, but I digress). So I agree that the
situation should be clarified.

I know that Monty has pretty strong feelings about this too, so I'll
wait for him to comment.
