Python idle3 editor

by default it seems idle3 needs python-extras installed otherwise you get:

** IDLE can’t import Tkinter.
Your Python may not be configured for Tk. **

Perhaps idle3 should be in moved to python-extra, OR the components for idle3 added to python3-basic.

Ah thanks for catching that. The idle command should have been moved with the tk bits but it was missed. It will be available in python-extras or python-tcl bundles going forward.

I am a big fun of Spyder IDE - it is kind a Matlab IDE for python, providing variable browsing and plotting, etc. I’ve installed it by my self and it works. May be sometime it can be included in some bundles?

Sure, would you mind opening a request at I tried to build it but ran into a few missing dependencies so it probably requires just a little more work.

Thank you for a reference. Request submitted.
