It got me a little further - I had to call virtualenv with python3 to get
it to configure a python3 virtual environment and then I managed to install
the pip3 dependencies.  However the pre-release script is still falling
over not being about to find ros buildfarm's wrapper_script_path.

It has been a while since I've built open source debs, but this is above
and beyond the effort required to prerelease for me though. It used to be
such a fundamental part of the process - what is the current thinking?
Given that its been out for at least three months, are most people just
guessing, rebuilding on the farm, guessing again? Is there a planned remedy
on the horizon?

My 2 cents - I'd really love to see this working again ;) ;) ;) ;)

Saves alot of time for me not having to ping pong back and forth trying to
get my dependencies right and I'm sure it makes the job easier on the other
end avoiding having so many red blips on the radar so often.
