Thanks for testing.

For StarChart, the latest release is for Python 2.  Work on a port to
Python 3 was begun but not completed.


For Flip Sticks, the latest release is for Python 3, but Fedora
project is not yet packaging that release.  I suggest upgrading to

For Labyrinth, the latest release is for GTK 2 and Python 2.  The
upstream project says nobody is maintaining it, but there has been
recent work this year on a port to GTK 3.


As this situation goes beyond SoaS, I've CC'd sugar-devel@ in case any
developers there wish to get involved.  I suggest you might like to do
the same.
