Separate old pycairo for python2
|Reported by:||Owned by:||blfs-book|
With pycairo-1.19.0 python2 is no-longer supported. On the page for that we have a note: The current version of pycairo no longer builds the Python2 module. If you need this module for packages sych as Gimp-2.10.14, use the pycairo-1.18.2 version and use the same commands as below substituting python for python3.
Unfortunately, this makes dependency tracking a bit harder. Gimp-2.10 will always require pygtk (using --disable-python removes all support for python2 scripting, which many peopel use).
So, I'm proposing to create a pycairo2 (i.e. 'for python2') page and link that from pygobject2, then leave the ticket open while we test our next release, to list anything else that wants old pycairo (Pierre might have a requirement in lxde).
