Re: python2-docutils (0.13.1-2 version) missing scripts

Seems like a pay Peter to pay Paul situation. I was hesitant to use

python3. Why not just do a python-docutils package to avoid confusion?
Aren't they just scripts that can run under either version of python?
The scripts from python3-docutils have a shebang line that specifies
python3. If you invoke them by name (as opposed to 'python <script
name>'), they will be run by python3. It would be possible to package
both versions by including the python version as part of the name, as is
done with easy_install-2.7 and easy_install-3.6, for a good reason. But
I'm not aware of any such good reason to go to that trouble for the
for a detailed discussion of how this issue is handled by Fedora. In
"If the executables provide the same functionality independent of
whether they are run on top of Python 2 or Python 3, then only the
Python 3 version of the executable should be packaged. Transitioning
from python2 to python3 is left to individual package maintainers...."
