- If this package can be used as a library and installs Python modules
(*.so or *.py) into site-packages directories, then consider supporting
installation for multiple Python versions.
Please read section "Types of packages" in documentation  to decide
if this package can support installation for multiple Python versions.
- Ensure that the ebuilds do not use deprecated functions or variables.
- Please check if Python 3 is supported by this package. You can temporarily
set Python 3 as main active version of Python to properly test if this
package supports Python 3.
- If this package does not support Python 3:
- Specify dependency on Python 2.
You can use PYTHON_DEPEND helper variable, which should be set before
inheriting of python eclass.
Please read section "Specification of dependency on Python" in
- If this package cannot support installation for multiple versions of
Python, then set active version of Python using
- Ensure that shebangs in installed scripts specify correct version of
Python. If shebangs are too generic (e.g. '#!/usr/bin/python'), then you
can use python_convert_shebangs() to convert shebangs.
(Wrapper scripts generated by python_generate_wrapper_scripts() do not
require any changes.)
Please read section "Shebangs in installed scripts" in documentation .
- To ensure that changes applied to the ebuilds are sufficient, please
temporarily set Python 3 as main active version of Python and test if
this package can be properly installed and if it works at run time.
Please see documentation  for more details.

latest is from 2004, only works with python 2.
RESTRICT_PYTHON_ABIS is for packages supporting installation for multiple
python_set_active_version() is for packages not supporting installation for
multiple Python ABIs.
Why do you use PYTHON_DEPEND="2::2.6"? Are you sure that this package doesn't support Python 2.7?
PYTHON_USE_WITH="tk" and python_pkg_setup() might be used.

The only thing installed except the docs is ;
does the shebang need to be fixed for Python 2 ie
Created attachment 229961 [details]
Fixed the shebang
seem to be the only requirements, python_pkg_setup() seems not to be needed.
I does support both pyth 2 & 3.
This approach was changed by the -r1 python eclasses
