[openstack-dev] Enforcing correct short and long description of packages we produce

Okay, how's it fixed? Just updating setup.cfg for each project.
Packaging is pretty much a blackbox to me (and I don't think I'm the only

that view). Letting us know about a problem is great, but a way to resolve 
would be even better.
