I couldn't tell, so I had a look.

I haven't done any function tests with Swift yet. The problem is that to 
test swift, you need to have at least 5 servers running. My plan was to 
test nova + glance + keystone, so that I can install swift on 5 VMs 
running on that mini single server cloud. I can't do that yet, since I 
don't have nova up and running.

However, swift is a lot more stable than the rest of Openstack. I don't 
think the codebase has changed that much, so it should be working out of 
the box with what we currently have in the Git on alioth. The unit tests 
of swift are almost all running without any error (only 1 fail):

FAIL: test_bad_sinces (test.unit.obj.test_server.TestObjectController)
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 1479, in test_bad_sinces
     self.assertEquals(resp.status_int, 412)
AssertionError: 200 != 412
     '200 != 412' = '%s != %s' % (safe_repr(200), safe_repr(412))
     '200 != 412' = self._formatMessage('200 != 412', '200 != 412')
 >>  raise self.failureException('200 != 412')

If you have any idea what that is, please let me know! :P

I tried to have a look still, and managed to find only cosmetic issues, 
for which you can see the changes here:

The Swift package is lintian clean (if you don't account missing man pages).

If it isn't working as expected, let the packaging team know, and we'll 
have a look ASAP.
