The software in this package is broken, ie. it does not work at all.
The version of python2-zeroconf should be reverted to 0.19.1, the last zeroconf release to support Python2.

As per the changelog:
> 0.20.0
> Dropped support for Python 2 (this includes PyPy) and 3.3
> Fixed some class’ equality operators
> ServiceBrowser entries are being refreshed when ‘stale’ now
> Cache returns new records first now instead of last

Trying to use the current version of the package leads to the following output:

> File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 1133, in run
> reader.handle_read(socket_)
> File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 1175, in handle_read
> msg = DNSIncoming(data)
> File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 644, in __init__
> self.read_questions()
> File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 667, in read_questions
> name = self.read_name()
> File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/", line 756, in read_name
> t = length & 0xC0
> TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for &: 'str' and 'int'

Hmm, nothing in the repos actually requires the python2 version.
