Sugar uses Python 2.

GStreamer project is dropping support for Python 2, and as a consequence
Sugar won’t be available in Debian, and then later Ubuntu.

Hope I understand this correctly.

Haven’t heard yet what Fedora will do, but guess it will be similar.

your package currently depends on python-gst-1.0. Upstream is planning
to drop Python 2.x support in the near future, leaving only Python 3

Please update your package to Python 3 to make this as painless as
possible later. Thanks!

Just an update here, this will likely happen in the next 2-3 months
with the next upstream release. Your package will become uninstallable
at that point unless it is ported to Python 3.--
