Hello With the help of Jonas, I have finally been able to transition the advene package to dh_python2 (now on my todo-list: propose additions to the CDBS doc to document it). All previous comments have been addressed.
I am now looking for a DD (Jonas again?) that would be willing to collaborate with me. I am ready to handle all maintenance of the package, but I cannot upload it.
