Todo List: Phasing out PyGTK

2020-03-14 - Balló György

PyGTK was used to create GTK2 applications in python2. It's deprecated and unmaintained since 2011 in favor of PyGObject, and does not receive any fixes since then.

We try to get rid from this package. This list contains all applications that depend on PyGTK.

What should be done:
- If PyGObject port is available and usable, then try to update.
- Otherwise, if the PyGTK usage can be disabled, build without it. (gimp, nmap)
- Otherwise, if the package has inactive upstream, then remove it.
