An author has uploaded an unofficial fork of the kafka-python project under the name "kafka": https://pypi.python.org/pypi/kafka.
We ask that you remove this package or rename it to something like kafka-unofficial. It is extremely confusing for users because it appears to be authoritative. The fork that was uploaded is broken for most use cases and appears to be unsupported even from the author.
An attempt was made to reach out to the author, but they aren't responsive: https://github.com/duanhongyi/kafka/issues/1
We have an open ticket for this on the python-kafka official repo here: https://github.com/mumrah/kafka-python/issues/82
