  Description     : common utilities for writing Fabric files

fabtools includes useful functions to help people write Fabric
files. For instance, through its API, it allows to manage system
users, packages, databases, ...

fabtools provides a number of low-level actions, as well as a higher
level interface named fabtools.require. This higher-level interface,
inspired by configuration management tools such as Chef or Puppet, is
declarative and idempotent.

(comments welcome on the long description, which looks like it needs
some expanding)

According to the Python policy, the binary package will be called
python-fabtools.

Well yes, it could explain what on earth "Fabric files" are. I had to
look up the github URL and there find a link to fabfile.org to get an
idea what this package is even about.

One sentence at the beginning of the long description should suffice,
something along the lines of "fabtools is/are [...] to [...] task files
for Fabric, a tool/library that [explanation]".
