I've noticed that some python3 packages I need are, in fact,

Or perhaps it's too early?

The new python singlespec approach can support "python3-only" packages
therefore the package should be able to find a home in d:l:p. See
for details

Last time I tried it didn't work.
Also I refer to the "As of 2017-03-07, however, this is untested and
probably broken."

Has the problem been fixed, to your knowledge?

Many packages do work based on the singlespec recipes and this is merely a
"disclaimer" because some packages for sure still don't yet fully work.

"Untested and probably broken" sounds like a somewhat strong disclaimer.
In fact, I tried again a moment ago and couldn't make it work. Do you have
a link to a working python3-only module packaged as singlespec?

I don't see a reason why the singlespec approach can not be used just
the package is developed elsewhere also I can not answer that question.

If the maintainers of said devel project won't/can't support the singlespec
for the time being, I'd say it's a problem.

So, in that case, would python3- packages be acceptable in d:l:p?
