[Catalog-sig] bad package that's fishing bitbucket emails

Hello mt,

It doesn't appear to be a clone, but embedding bitbucket - and the Python package *seems* genuine. 

The correct place to report issues with pypi is the tracker (no-one on this webmaster alias is involved in the administration of pypi):


For *discussing* PyPI issues, which seems wise for this particular question, the catalog-sig email list is the right place:


I've copied them in on this email

All the best,

Michael Foord

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
