I checked that before committing (I always do). py-txaio is required by:
but these are already Python 3.x only.

By the way, there are more and more packages that drop 2.x support. It has become extremely difficult to maintain 2.x compatibility within PkgSrc. (For exmaple, I am still holding an import of newer Numpy along with the old one, because of the tedious work that has to be done). I guess, in the end, it is a question of having up to date package versus keeping the stale ones for the sake of the dead Python.

That's my observation. :)

Kind regards,
