Hello there,

In Slackware current, python packages are both provided for python 3 and 
python 2 using the same SlackBuild file.

In SlackBuilds repository there are some duplications for the same 
packages. E.g. python3-Pygments and Pygments.

Should we start merging all these python3 packages with their python2 in 
master branch?

Exemple of current: 

Also, I think we should update the python SlackBuild template. I propose 
to add templates as part of the git repository, it will be easier to 
maintain templates per Slackware version and to provide patches.
