Comment 1 Troy Curtis 2017-12-13 04:32:06 UTC
I see that gtk-doc-1.27 is in testing [0], which includes additional upstream python3 fixes.  If no one has time to test getting the Fedora package converted to python3, I'd be happy to pull it together.  I just don't want to duplicate work others may already be involved in.
