      Description

      MariaDB Connector/Python's source tarballs currently uses a non-description name for the top-level directory.

      For example, I downloaded the following source tarball:

      $ ll mariadb-connector-python-0.9.59.tar.gz 
      -rw-rw-r-- 1 geoff geoff 79194 Jun  8 13:16 mariadb-connector-python-0.9.59.tar.gz
      

      Let's look at what the top-level directory inside the tarball is called:

      $ tar -tzvf mariadb-connector-python-0.9.59.tar.gz | head -n 1
      drwxrwxr-x georg/georg       0 2020-05-26 01:42 mariadb-0.9.59/
      

      The name mariadb-0.9.59 is obviously not very descriptive. In my opinion, it would be more appropriate to use a name like mariadb-connector-python-0.9.59 instead.
