Please note that package repository names are based on actual source
package names in Debian. For example, /openstack/openstack-trove and not
just trove, which refers to a Java library in Debian.


P.S: I'd also would like to add that I've seen people bike-shedding
around the name "openstack-pkg-tools". The rename of this tool is *not*
open for discussion (it would be too much work). Yes, it's Debian
specific, but maybe it wont at some point, as there are tools that may
be interesting for RPM guys. Even if we never do that, this (Debian
native) package is prefixed by "deb-" like every other Git repository,
so there's no way to be confused. Finally, this has *nothing* to do with
the actual TC discussion, so let's discuss this issue *separately*,
shall we?
