Default Package naming help, please

The way I interpreted the Package Naming Guidelines[1], the package I'm
working on (pysvn) should be called python-svn. Is this not correct[2]?

pysvn is a valid name for your package.

Thanks! Somehow I missed that little blurb under the examples. pysvn
also falls under the "how it is called" rule, as it is used as "import
pysvn". So many documents...

For that package you could use either python-pysvn[1]_ or pysvn[2]_.

.. _[1]: 'They should take into account the upstream name of the python
module. This makes a package name format of python-$NAME. When in doubt,
use the name of the module that you type to import it in a script.' You
use "import pysvn" so $NAME = pysvn there.


.. _[2]: 'There is an exception to this rule. If the upstream source has
"py" (or "Py") in its name, you can use that name for the package. So,
for example, pygtk is acceptable.' So a plain pysvn is fine.
