[Slackbuilds-users] Conflicts and/or redundancies of slackbuilds of some python packages (constantly, incremental, hyperlink)

Hi, recent update includes three new slackbuilds of python packages 
supported by Python 3, but these are reduntant with other available 
slackbuilds or may cause conflicts between different versions of the 
same module:

1) redundancies

python3-incremental: this builds and installs incremental for Python 3, 
but in the repository there is also the slackbuild incremental that 
builds and installs for both Python 2 and Python 3. Both slackbuilds 
build the same source.

Also python3-hyperlink (supporting Python 3) conflicts with hyperlink 
(supporting both Python 2 and Python 3)

These redundancies should cause issues in the package management because 
two different packages share the same files in Python 3

2) conflicts

python3- constantly builds constantly-23.10.4 for Python 3, but there is 
also the slackbuild constantly, that builds and installs 
constantly-15.1.0 for Python 2 and Python 3. This should cause conflicts 
because in Python 3 could exist two different versions of the same module

How to solve?
