PyGTK Deprecated in Debian 10
I do packaging work for Debian and noticed in our bugtracker that there's been a bug open for chirp for a while now (text copied below)
The long & short of it is that the Gnome Team are aiming to remove PyGTK from Debian by the time Buster rolls around (mid 2019).
While this isn't immediately an issue, I worry that by the time we hit new Debian Stable and Ubuntu 19.10, we'll all begin to see bug reports about CHIRP not working on Debian/Ubuntu/Mint/etc.
I appreciate it's a pile of work to port to GTK3+, and I can't quite find if this is definitely going ahead this release cycle, but I figured it was worth raising as a consideration for the future! Even if we lose chirp from the release of debian-nextstable, it'd be great if it kept working in the Debian & Friends sandbox anywau.
Thanks for doing awesome work :D
pygtk is unmaintained upstream. It has not had a release since GNOME 3 was released in 2011. The way forward is to port your app to use GObject Introspection bindings. For more information on GObject Introspection see  and . Please try to do this before the Buster release as we're going to try to remove pygtk this cycle. If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.  https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GObjectIntrospection  https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/PyGObject On behalf of the Debian GNOME team, Jeremy Bicha
