python 3.5 patches
Here is a set of patches to let gnome3 be built with python3.5
Most of the files are just packaging fixes (.pyo extension is no more in python 3.5), and one build patch is for py3-cairo, for it's bundled waf.
After that we can lauch an exp-run to make 3.5 default version of python3.
Also referencing 203428 bug, because it will resolve reporters problem.
py3-cairo build patch is obtained from Ubuntu repository.
@Ruslan Is it this issue that need an exp-run? If so set flag here, if not set flag on Bug 203428, if not that one, create issue for exp-run patch and have it depend on this
No, this issue doesn't requires exp-run - these patches are pretty simple and I already successfully use gnome3 with python3.5. Right now we have python3.4 as default python3 version in Mk/Uses/python.mk. Changing it to 3.5 will require an exp-run. I'll create an PR when this one will be committed.
