Source: pytaglib
Severity: wishlist


Would it be possible to include a python-pytaglib package from this source
package, in order to have a python2 version?

The reason I do need it is because python-nautilus from the archives runs
extensions as python2, and the extension I am writing for Nautilus uses

I realize that we want to go forward with Python and prefer 3 over 2, but I
don't think there is any harm in supporting both in two different packages.

This could be a bug for nautilus-python instead, but I'm not sure if it's
possible to have it run extensions in both python2 and python3, or if it could
break peoples python extension. I filed it here, since this is (imho) the
easier way.

(Also, upstream seem to have fixed his non-free file, so if we do a version
bump (to 0.4.1) I *think* we could remove the dfsg level from the version.)
