Summary 0005562: gnunet-qr must be fixed (is permanently stuck on python2.7)
Revision 2019-02-13 15:39 by ng0
Description https://pypi.org/project/zbar/#description
seems to be the dependency we use for the optional gnunet-qr.

gnunet-qr code: https://git.gnunet.org/gnunet.git/tree/src/util/gnunet-qr.py.in

This zbar was never ported to python3 / python3.7.
This means that we have an optional runtime dependency which will never make its way out of python2.7.

I see 3 fixes:

1) rewrite to fix (in some other language or another - python3.7 - module)
2) port zbar module to python3.7 and maintain it
3) find a new module which has the same qualities as zbar on pypi and update gnunet-qr with it.

Maybe a potential GSoC task, or is this too short?
