Bug description:
  I have spoken directly with the maintainer of pyexiv2 and we have
  agreed that pyexiv2 is an abandoned project that will never support
  Python3. Therefore, anything that depends on pyexiv2 is going to be
  stuck on Python 2 until they port to GExiv2. GExiv2 is a clear winner
  in terms of simplicity, and maintainability.

  Packages marked as affected by this bug were designated so because
  they have a dependency on the pyexiv2 package. They will need to be
  ported to GExiv2 before they can be ported to Python 3. Here is the
  popcon data for these packages, which may hopefully allow us to
  prioritize this work by installation popularity:
