Package: wxpython3.0
Severity: serious

the change of wxversion to 3.0 prevents importing wx if only 2.8 is
This breaks for example matplotlib which still depends on wxgtk2.8.
See e.g. the autopkgtest in ubuntu:


Or in an unstable chroot:

apt-get install python-wxgtk2.8
python -c "import wx"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named wx
