Version: 0.98.1-7
Severity: important

Usertags: oldlibs python-gnome2 gnome-python


sugar-toolkit depends on python-gnome2 or python-gconf, or has a
build-dependency on one those packages. Those are built from
gnome-python which is long deprecated and going to be removed from
the archive. sugar-toolkit should be ported away from it.

The way forward is to port your app to use GObject Introspection

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 gnome-python this cycle.

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