Bug Description

gnome-python and pyorbit have been removed from Debian Testing because it is an old GNOME2 library that hasn't been maintained in years. It will take some time for those packages to be removed from Debian Unstable but that shouldn't stop us from doing the removal in Ubuntu now.

Latest version of Guake in bionic no longer depends on python-gconf, so that's one down. (See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=845949 for details.)
