|Summary||0000595: Plans to Upgrade to PyGObject and Python3?|
|Description||I recently released version 1.0.0 of Gaphas, which upgraded PyGTK to PyGObject. I want to make sure that you know about this change so that you can pin version 0.7.2 of Gaphas and I also want to see if you have any plans to upgrade ASCEND as well?|
The countdown is on for support ending for legacy Python (https://pythonclock.org/), and PyGTK is also no longer maintained. I also have quite a bit of experience upgrading to PyGObject, GTK+3, and Python 3, so I could provide some guidance if desired.

hi cbryeaw -- sorry for the massive delay. yes, we do aim to upgrade ASCEND to Python3 and Gtk3. We already have some contributions on this (I'll look at the Gaphas issue) and really need to get on to this now given the very soon expiry of Python 2.
and yes, if you are able to help out with any of that, please let me know.
