Summary0004974: Ensure cherrytree goes back to Debian testing
DescriptionWe have forked cherrytree because it has been removed from Debian testing due to its usage of an obsolete package: python-gtksourceview2

This is bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=822586

Unfortunately upstream never managed to port the code to the gobject-introspection version of the libraries:
https://github.com/giuspen/cherrytree/issues/125

He is mostly stuck on this limitation of GTK+ and their Python bindings:
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/pygobject/issues/133
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/364

Due to this, he started to rewrite the application in C++ with gtkmm. The work is slowly progressing in the "future" directory of the master branch. The author shares some updates from time to time in https://www.giuspen.com/topic/status-of-the-development/

As of today, the C++ port is not ready, though it should be able to work in read-only mode (displaying content) according to https://www.giuspen.com/topic/status-of-the-development/page/4/
