I am not sure this is okay to backport. The update was minor only in version scheme. cc @worldofpeace

How to know if this is OK to backport?

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.

The unpackPhase override was only needed when the download server mangled the file extension:

I agree with @jtojnar this isn't suitable for backport, and just because in 20.03 we didn't axe python3 just yet.
