That's one of those packages which I'm reluctant to NMU as I don't have suitable test data, and I don't know much about the field they're used in, so even with suitable test data I'm not sure how well I could test an updated package. So I'm particularly glad to see it taken care of. > > If you're alluding to #750910 particularly, the issue there was that > > there's a significantly newer upstream version, and so trying to port > > the current package to wx3 seemed a bad approach.

However, that's orthogonal to the wxPython 2.8->3.0 transition - if gnumed-client remained using wxPython 2.8, it would still be stuck in the same situation. The essential problem is simply that gnumed-client has one dependency which is dropping python2 support and another which doesn't yet have python3 support. I've not looked at what gnumed-client uses python-uno for, but if it is just doing document conversion, then LO 4.3 has a "libreofficekit" API (it was actually in 4.2 as "liblibreoffice", but 4.3 is more solid) which provides access to document conversion with significantly less overhead than via uno: https://github.com/xrmx/pylokit Otherwise, the only short-term solution which I can think of is for gnumed-client to add a python2 facade to access python3.3-uno, e.g. serialising function calls over a pipe.

I'd certainly be happy with fewer unfriendly responses, but there really haven't been a lot. I have a script in the works to aid with porting to wxPython 3.0 by updating for a few changes to constant and method names, based on experience so far and the (sadly rather vague in places) list of changes upstream provide. Once that's in a sane state, my plan was to send a note to appropriate lists. > Luckily I managed to upload treeviewx yesterday and I will have a look > into ctsim and sitplus soon. Hope this will help your effort. Yes, much appreciated.
