Continuing to demote Python 2, we want to get rid of it on server[*] if at all
possible. For example, I've identified byobu, landscape-common, and vim as
three packages with `Task: server` pulling in Python 2.7.
For byobu, we have LP: #1253458, currently waiting on some feedback from
For vim, we have http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=729924
currently waiting on feedback from Debian Vim maintainers. I'm not a Vim
user, but if you want to help test this, a package is available in my PPA:
Based on your feedback, I'd be willing to temporarily get ahead of Debian here.
landscape-client may be trickier because that gets us into some Twisted
packages, which aren't yet packaged for Python 3.

Looks like powernap still depends on Python 2.

Whatever is pulling this one in should be ported to python3-bs4, or at least
python-bs4 since afaict beautifulsoup 3 is no longer being actively maintained
upstream (critical bug fixes only according to them).

Upstream 0.7 supports Python 3, but not yet Debian - BTS #731280.
Upstream 0.4.2 supports Python 3, but not yet Debian - BTS #731283.
