Updated unoconv package makes it usable

Publication date: 10 Mar 2015
Type: bugfix
Affected Mageia releases : 4


unoconv 0.4 as shipped in Mageia 4 is not usable, since it is a Python 2 
script that depends on Libreoffice's pyuno module, but the latter is Python 3
only (mga#14046).

This update provides a development snapshot of unoconv's master branch (there
has not been any stable release since the 0.6 release in 2012), which includes
among other fixes the needed Python 3 compatibility.

Known issues:
 - On the first invocation, unoconv might fail with "Error: Unable
to connect or start own listener. Aborting." because it does not find its
config file. It will nevertheless generate it and work on subsequent calls
 - The command in itself is not 100% reliable: if it works, that's great,
 if it doesn't you might want to file an bug report upstream at
