Why isn't there a deb package for rosinstall?

The install/setup instructions tell users to:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo easy_install -U rosinstall

It seems like something that should be part of ros core, or at the very least have a deb package associated.

Is there any particular reason for this?

Is this something I should file a feature request ticket for?

This would make a good ticket, though it something that is currently being worked on.

BTW, you can easily generate a debian package for rosinstall yourself:

sudo apt-get install python-stdeb
pypi-install --keep rosinstall
find /tmp -name 'python-rosinstall*.deb'
