I sponsored swiftsc, though for backup2swift debian/py3dist-override has
"etuptools" instead of "setuptools" (the initial s is missing). I have
committed the fix to Git.

I also would like to rephase the long description. Currently you have:

"This tool is that backup data to OpenStack Swift. provides features are
command line interface, and backup rotatition. This is depend on
swiftsc, that is simple client library of OpenStack Swift."

My proposal:

"Description: backup data to OpenStack Swift - python3
This utility is used to backup data to OpenStack Swift. It provides a
command interface and backup rotation. It depends on a simple swift
client library called swiftsc.
This package provides the python 3 module."

If you agree I may upload the package with the above modifications.

Thanks for your contribution to Debian,

Thomas Goirand (zigo)
