missing kdev-python3 package

Bug Description

This ppa contains a series packages for Kubuntu including kdev-python. However, according to the author (Sven Brauch), kdev-python has a compile-time switch to choose between supporting python2 or python3. Unfortunately, there is no package of kdev-python that includes the build for python3 and hence there is no debugger support etc. for python 3 available. It would be great if such a package could be added. Suggested name: kdev-python3. It is important that kdev-python and kdev-python3 are mutually exclusive, hence each needs a conflict w/ the other as it is currently not possible to have both at the same time.

Just saw that debian provides (only) the Python 3 version of the package: https://packages.debian.org/jessie/kdevelop-python

Please provide a package of kdev-python for python3. I've tried building the packages myself, the latest attempt in a perfect record of failure. ( Fight Club outtake: 'What do want to do before you die?' Build a linux package!')
Python 3 began in 2008. Soon it will be able to vote. Some packages only use Python3: Libre Office. So not supporting it just adds a whole new wrinkle to the Getting Stuff Done department.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Kubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Kubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Kubuntu version. If you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running only once:
apport-collect 1387300

and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.

as of Artful Aardvark a new package named kdevelop-python provides Python 3 support: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kdevelop-python. I doubt that there still is a Python 2 package (kdev-python is now a dummy package requiring kdevelop-python), but it is safe to close this wishlist item. Sorry for not having had a look at this earlier.
Best, g
