    It seems like the pragmatic thing to do here is to revert this one to fix
    the python2 programs and modules that depend on it. We'll have to do a bit
    more research to determine what the best course of action is regarding
    python2 in general, though. Certainly we shouldn't be requiring python2
    for anything important moving forward, but even that will take some work.
    Plasma 5 as currently built has multiple dependencies on python2, for
    example.

    This requires the new libnma package.
  • kernels/*
  • a/cryptsetup-2.3.0-arm-2.txz
    Include some additional documentation. Thanks to regdub.

  • l/tevent-0.10.2-arm-3.txz
  • n/bind-9.16.0-arm-3.txz
    Drop python2 support and switch to python3.
    Applied upstream patch to fix a discrepancy in the quota code that can
    result in a situation where the count is not properly decremented in
    some cases.
  • n/rp-pppoe-3.13-arm-3.txz
    This needed a rebuild for ppp-2.4.8. Thanks to regdub.
  • isolinux/*
  • xap/libnma-1.8.28-arm-1.txz
    This is the NetworkManager GUI client library, which was previously
    provided by network-manager-applet. It's now a standalone project, and
    is required by network-manager-applet and other NetworkManager frontends.
