Here is patch to upgrade itstool from 2.0.2 to 2.0.4 with few changes:
- use python3 (added in 2.0.3: http://itstool.org/download.html)
- add fix for merge operation (open issue: https://github.com/itstool/itstool/issues/19 )
Patch doesn't apply cleanly, needs to be rebased

Just some info, there are bugs in this release that break the build. One of these is a translation in the gnumeric package. So this needs to be tested before this update can be committed.

Upgrade to 2.0.5
Among the ChangeLog entries is the claim, that PY2/PY3 issues have been resolved. Indeed, I successfully built this port with Python-3.6 and then used it to successfully build gtk-doc.
