I have numerous packages (20?) I maintain that are c libraries at

them have both python- and python3- sub-packages.

They currently live in security:forensics (and factory).

Will they be able to leverage the proposed new macros? Or do they
have to be moved to d:l:py?

Is it current policy they should be there already?

I also have 4 or 5 dual python app / python library packages
(python-dfVFS, etc.) and one pure python app (python-plaso).

My preference is to leave all of the above in security:forensics.


I had a similar situation with the efl (Enlightenment Foundation
Libraries) bindings which are much better left in the enlightenment
devel repo, I was also planning on using the macro's but given that
every known application that uses these bindings also uses python3 in
the end I just swapped them out directly. So I agree that it would be
ideal if the macro's become available everywhere.
