A quick update. Martin has ported apport to Python 3 (yay!) and along the
way, he's told me that the bits of apport that require python-launchpadlib are
only required on the server side, not the desktop. Thus, with some
refactoring of the packaging, we can remove python-launchpadlib as a
task:ubuntu-desktop dependency from apport.
This means that we can defer porting python-launchpadlib and its dependencies
until later (i.e. not this cycle). This let's us also defer
python-lazr.restfulclient, python-lazr.authentication, python-keyring,
python-wadllib and wsgi_intercept. Having worked on this stack unsuccessfully
for about a week, this is a *really* good thing. Thanks Martin!
We still need python-oauth because of oneconf, gwibber,
python-ubuntu-sso-client, and python-ubuntuone-client and we still need to
port various libraries and applications away from python-simplejson, among
various other tasks.
I've updated the spreadsheet accordingly and the transition tracker should get
updated automatically the next time the cronjob runs.
