 Thanks for letting us know. I’m sorry to say I can’t find the detail
 regarding the python 3 issue.
 If I were to guess though, I suspect the problem is that pyke forked
 itself and maintains two branches
 for its python 2 -> python 3 journey (don’t know why one would choose to
 do that).

 As a result, pyke for python 3 needs to come from a different source.
 To see how to work around that, the conda-forge build for this is done in


 Hopefully my guess is on target, but if not,
