The short description should not contain the package name, so:
"python binding for libssh2 library."

It is usually a good idea to insert the original library's description,
so I suggest the following long description:

-----
libssh2 is the thin library implementing client side of SSH2 protocol
as defined by Internet Drafts SECSH-TRANS, SECSH-USERAUTH,
SECSH-CONNECTION, SECSH-ARCH, SECSH-FILEXFER, SECSH-DHGEX,
SECSH-NUMBERS, and SECSH-PUBLICKEY
.
This boils down to the regular terminal, scp and SFTP sessions; port
forwarding; password, key-based and keyboard-interactive
authentication.
.
This package contains the python bindings libssh2. It is a fork and
rewrite of org.keyphrene.
-----

Note that the two first paragraph are a pristine copy of libssh2
description... the I18N teams should appreciate ;)

Regards

Frankli n

Yes, it looks better.
We could file a bug against libssh2 now ;)
