Patch to add python3 support.

Upstream supports it.  We should do it.  :)

This also updates the python macros to the new ones in the packaging guidelines.

It also adds a new dep on python-stuf, which is apparently required but was missing.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Modified Ralph Bean's patch so it can be applied to the latest build.

Maintainer is it ok to push the changes?

Comment 4 Ralph Bean 2016-03-29 01:40:57 UTC
Could be low hanging fruit to fix this one, Luke.

Comment 5 Tomas Orsava 2016-05-06 15:17:12 UTC
Hi Luke,
as this is a bit of a time sensitive issue, we would really appreciate if you could take a look at the patch as soon as possible.
If you are time constrained right now, I hope you won't mind if we do the review and push the changes ourselves in case you won't respond within a week.

Thank you!

A new rendition of a Python 3 patch

So, to go with the trend I also modified the existing (Charalampos') patch. I fixed a name of one dependency and created a macro for the long description so it can be provided in full with each subpackage, as god and the packager intended.

There is a slight problem that the package python2/3-stuf which is a runtime dependency of this package has a bug, which I promptly reported [0], therefore it is not possible to test this package to the full extent until the bug is fixed. 

Nevertheless, I believe the patch is solid and can be pushed, as the packager has not responded in half a year. I hope you won't mind, Luke.
