[Gajim-devel] questions about dependencies of gajim trunk

Old gajim ebuild (gentoo package) has optional dependency on
dev-python/notify-python, which is not available for usage with python
3.x. (I haven't tried doing this forcefully yet).
In translation files, I see mentions of python-notify:
"Requires python-notify or instead python-dbus in conjunction with "
which (python-notify) seems to be this:
This is not updated since 2006 and e.g. debian packages quite match
that: version 0.1.1, python 2 only:
I don't believe this can work anymore for gajim from git master branch,
which requires python 3.5 or higher.
Alternative of using python-dbus & notification-daemon looks promising,
but I'd like to confirm with developers because whole quoted message can
be outdated just as python-notify thing itself.
Dear Gajim developers, could you please specify which are actual
dependencies around notifications?
Thanks a lot in advance.
