Hello Sam,

You are correct, but the implementation I chose when developing those
packages is not 100% correct (vcstools-git should be named
python2-vcstools-git and all /usr/bin/python should change by sed to
python2 etc). I will fix all those problems and test them thoroughly
before reuploading them with proper naming and correct functionality.
