Bug Description

Now that we have python3-xapian1.3 in Xenial, we can port apt-xapian-index to Python 3. I have a two branches in progress. The first ports a-x-i to bilingual Python 2/3 support, and I hope to get this merged upstream.

Once we have that, the delta to switch to Python 3 is relatively small, and my second branch does this.

I have two branches which I've submitted to the maintainers. The first makes a-x-i bilingual so it should be a low-impact branch to apply in Debian:


The second flips the switch to Python 3 so if the above branch is merged and uploaded, we could carry just a small delta in Ubuntu:


Let's see what the Debian maintainers say. If needed, I'll carry both deltas in Ubuntu.
