sugar-record-activity depends on python-rsvg, which is long
deprecated and going to be removed from the archive.
sugar-record-activity should switch to using the GObject
Introspection bindings for gnome-keyring, gir1.2-rsvg-2.0.

This would mean switching to GObject Introspection for other bindings
as well, e.g. GLib and GTK+, so making the switch to GTK+ 3 at the
same time would make a lot of sense.

For more information on GObject Introspection see [1] and [2].

Please try to do this before the Stretch release as we're going to
try to remove it this cycle.

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
