Hi David,

there has already been some talk about it and the plan should be
merging the eventual two versions of the Slackbuild in a single one
for both python-2.x and python3-3.x when the repository will be
migrated to the next Slackware version, keeping things untouched in
the meantime to avoid confusion and issues with dependencies.

regarding templates I think you missed them, but they are already in
their own git repository
