Request #26340 has been rejected by ainola [1]:

The name "mkdocs" appears to be correct in accordance to the rules on
naming Python packages [1]. As this is a standalone program and not a
library closely related to the Python ecosystem, it should remain as
is and python-mkdocs should instead be merged into this package.
Indeed, looking through the "getting started" guide on mkdocs' website
suggests that the only interaction with mkdocs is as a utility, much
like Hugo.

I see that there are many "modules" for mkdoc that have a python-
prefix as well; I would also argue that they should simply be "mkdoc-
foo" rather than "python-mkdoc-foo" as, again, there's no real
relationship to the Python ecosystem.
