OK, well keep me in the loop, people have already started the hack and
slash of what they feel as redundant pyhthon2 only dependencies in
Fedora 30. This has affected sugar-toolkit through the use of
gnome-python2-rsvg which affects the Activities below, we might be
able to get a minor window of relief on that but I'm not convinced.
no idea how that works from a packaging dependency or Sugar bindings
PoV (does it use gjs?) and don't have the time to dig into it
unfortunately.Kalpa can you assist here?
I was already considering dropping anything requiring the original
sugar-toolkit from the default spin for an upcoming release so maybe
we just need to go through the list below and work out which are
likely to be migrated to gtk3 or JS and possibly just retire the rest?
