Package: spe
Severity: normal


This is one of 3 packages in the archive that still depends on

I intend to have the pychecker package removed from unstable a little
while after buster is released.  Besides its lack of support for Python
3, pychecker has been completely unsupported upstream for close to a
decade.  It really should have been removed from the archive years ago.

I am not sure whether it's possible to convert spe to some alternative
tool, such as pylint.  You may simply need to disable the parts of spe
that depend on pychecker.  Or perhaps spe is obsolete and should itself
be removed from the archive.

If you let me know that you are intending to convert spe to some
alternative and need some time to complete that work, I will hold off on
removing pychecker from the archive until after you're done.  If I don't
hear anything, then I'll move forward and have the package removed
sometime in late July.
