[20.03] inkscape: 0.92.4 → 0.92.5 #86952
Motivation for this change
Inkscape 0.92.4 depends on python 2
I think this is partly matter of opinion. We are not as strict as e.g. Ubuntu, for example we sometimes allow not-so-minor updates in leaf packages when they are broken (e.g. depend on an online service that changed API), but if the old it might be not worth the risk backporting – it might break users or even other packages.
Thankfully, I do not think this release includes the new CLI api that broke everything (#68930) but it still switched from Python 2 to Python 3. As such, it might be potentially breaking for users that have extra Inkscape extensions installed. For that reason, I think it is unsuitable for backporting into a stable release.
But maybe you can convince a release manager that the breakage is unlikely and the benefits are super neat.
