I'm on the mass bug filing, but I need the tracker updated again. And I need to go through the suggestions here on the list how to work on things to make the py2-rm issues more readable. I didn't hear back from Piotr after DebConf, but I think what we need is dh-python generating python2/python2.7 dependencies instead of python dependencies, and maybe make shebang rewriting to python2/python2.7 the default.
