Package: jupyter-console
Version: 5.2.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Requesting a python2 kernel gives this:

---<--------------------cut here---------------start------------------->---
$ jupyter console --kernel=python2
Jupyter console 5.2.0

Python 3.6.3 (default, Oct  3 2017, 21:16:13) 
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 5.5.0 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?         -> Introduction and overview of IPython's features.
%quickref -> Quick reference.
help      -> Python's own help system.
object?   -> Details about 'object', use 'object??' for extra details.

In [1]: 
---<--------------------cut here---------------end--------------------->---

python2 is certainly an available kernel (I believe from
python-ipykernel package):

$ jupyter kernelspec list
