Package pywebkitgtk

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 pywebkitgtk in the Fedora Pagure, or go directly to the corresponding spec file.

Fedora X

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) and webkitgtk4 (provides the gi.repository.WebKit2 module). Note that webkitgtk4 is not specific to Python and thus does not show up in portingdb.

An example that works with Python 3 is provided on the GTK wiki.
