Package notify-python

This package will not be ported to Python 3. We can do without it – see if there is an alternative listed in the notes.

If you think it would be good to port it anyway, get in touch with the upstream!

See notify-python in the Fedora Pagure, or go directly to the corresponding spec file.

This package provided customized static Python bindings to a GTK library. GTK3 and GObject introspection provide dynamic bindings that do not need to be customized for each language, thus this package is not necessary.

Suggested replacement: python-gobject (provides the gi module)

A small tutorial for using libnotify's dynamic Python bindings was written by Dev_Dungeon user NanoDano.
