One such package is scons, which has been switched to be using
in request

Now, scons is a bit 'special', as it is written in python and is
basiclaly compatible to python2 AND python3, BUT it parses
SConstruct/SConscript of different packages. And there the results
a bit mixed when it comes to python3 compliance

Martin setup a test branch where he monitors all packages in
openSUSE:Factory using scons as their build script, see

FYI: scons has just been merged into openSUSE:Factory and will, from
this day forward, be using python3 as interpreter.

As per Martin's project, there are three packages not yet fixed in
devel prj (I did not check which of those did not forward the change

The three packages knowing to break are:
* mongodb (failed already to build in oS:F before the switch)
* mypaint

From my attempts [1], it looks like mypaint may be unfixable, unless we
update to the git master tip. At version 1.1.0 which is the last stable
release that actually works on openSUSE -- there is a version 1.2.1
which doesn't work because pygtkcompat is unavailable on openSUSE (and
for good reasons), mypaint is only compatible with python 2.7. We could
either upgrade mypaint to it's git master (which will eventually become
1.3.0), or have a new scons-py2 package just to get mypaint 1.1.x
building. The latter option seems like an overkill to me, but
suggestions welcome.
