There's no proof of it in the source code, though I *know* that
Rackspace is involved in the writing of Trove, because I met the authors
during the last summit in Portland. It was called project "red dwarf" at
that time.

Having only HP in the debian/copyright is to me simply wrong. See my
other reply about emails@<company-name> as well.

I do review it manually.

Added in the git on Alioth.

Please reply to the above so that I can proceed with the eventual needed
modifications and re-upload.
