[opensuse-packaging] The Python3 devel project will be devel:languages:python3

Hi guys,

since the Python bunch had the discussion recently, I want to drop all python3 package _links in devel:languages:python and use their counterparts in devel:languages:python3 as devel packages for Factory from now on. This would include a number of chgdevel requests for Factory [1]. The idea behind to have only python2 packages in devel:languages:python. Currently, this project reached a size where it became tedious to use "zypper up".

However, we will continue to track spec files for both python versions at the old package location (d:l:p). It should be easier to keep spec files in sync this way and you can submit changes for both in a single submit request. So for the packager, this won't change much. If you add a python3 spec file, a project maintainer will branch it to devel:languages:python3 once your sr is accepted.

If we end up in far distant future where only python3 matters and the py2 maintenance burden isn't justified anymore, both projects can become independent of each other. For that we would simply remove _link files to d:l:p.

So if nobody objects, I'll do it this afternoon.

Viele Grüße,
Sascha Peilicke
