Excerpts from Michael Biebl's message of Sun Aug 14 23:34:47 +0200 2011:
> sugar-read-activity uses python-evince, a python binding for libevince

> python-evince will no longer be buildable, as soon as we upload evince

> The bindings for libevdocument and libevview in version 3.0 are

> Your package needs to be updated to use that new binding infrastructure.
Updating Read to use evince 3 requires a GTK 3 based sugar-toolkit
version since GTK 2 and GTK 3 cannot be mixed within the same process.
Porting Sugar to Gnome 3 is an ongoing effort  and will probably take
another few months to complete.
In the meantime it would be great to have an actually working version
[2,3] of python-evince:
>>> import evince
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'View'
(wheezy-jhbuild)sascha.silbe at twin:~$ dpkg -l python-evince
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)

ii python-evince 2.32.0-1+b1 Python bindings for the evince libraries
