Bug Description

gnome-python-desktop was recently removed from Debian Testing since it is GNOME2 tech that has been unmaintained for years. I'm filing this bug since I don't think we should ship gnome-python-desktop in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and it may take quite a while before gnome-python-desktop is removed from Debian Unstable.

See also the gnome-python removal bug LP: #1739800 which this bug blocks.
