Please don't remove any games from Debian because of the Python 2
removal and try to port the games to Python 3 instead. For instance
Bernhard has done a lot of good porting work and ported several games to
Python 3 already. Even if we don't succeed in porting all games to
Python 3 in time for Debian 11, then we should just give people more
time to realize the impact of the py2removal goal.
