Source: pyxb
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

According to the upstream documentation webpage, a Python 3 compatible version
of pyxb is available for the current 1.2.3 release. It would be nice to have 
the Python 3 packages as well.

The challenging bit however is that the Python 3 version currently lives in a 
separate dev branch, so the only way out is probably to patch the source on 
the Debian side so a 2to3 conversion can be done.

Another option is to wait for v1.3 or v2.0 but I am doubtful upstream will 
release any new version on time before the freeze, will it ?
