I know, migration to python3 is inevitable. However, the transition
from geda-gaf-1.8 to 1.10 involved large amounts of python code. I
talked to upstream (Roland Lutz): Migration to python3 will be a little
tedious and non-trivial. It will be the main focus of upcoming
development, non the less.

Beeing new to Debian package maintenance, I am unsure how to proceed on
this. Should I act on the bugs? Am I allowed to set tags? If so which
would be appropriate?
