[Sugar-devel] [FEATURE] Separate python version packages for sugar-toolkit-gtk3

G'day Sukhdeep,

I don't know what your approach was, sorry.

What is needed now is a python3-sugar3 deb package, containing the
HEAD of _master_ branch, built for python3, alongside a python-sugar3
deb package, built for python2.  Both would be installed at once.

Also, the python-sugar3 package shouldn't contain
/usr/bin/sugar-activity3 as that file is for python3, and therefore
should be in the python3-sugar3 package.

Also, it should be documented so that anyone else to reproduce the

Debian bug 931666 is related.

Mailing list automatically adds [Sugar-devel] subject tag, if it is
not already present.  You don't need to add it, but it is harmless if
you do.

Hope that helps!
