Now that the missing libraries are in Jessie (#5875, #6175), we need to migrate our custom programs to Python3.

$ git grep "^ *import " config/
$ git grep "^ *from [^ -]* import " config/

Main Git repository

Modules not included in standard library follow:

config/chroot_local-includes/etc/whisperback/config.py

Was migrated to Python3 as part of WhisperBack (see below).

config/chroot_local-includes/usr/local/bin/lc.py

Should be migrated to Python3: #10088

config/chroot_local-includes/usr/local/bin/shutdown_helper_applet

We will not use this applet in Tails/Jessie, so there is nothing to do.

  • gtk: deprecated, replaced by python3-gi and gir1.2-gtk-3.0
  • gnomeapplet: deprecated, replaced by python3-gi and gir1.2-panelapplet-4.0
