Simfactory dependencies not explicit

When running the Simplified Tutorial for New Users I get the following error at configuring Simfactory:

./simfactory/bin/sim build --mdbkey make 'make -j1' --thornlist=manifest/

Traceback (most recent call last): File "./simfactory/bin/../lib/", line 39, in <module> import libutil File "/home/fede/Documents/ET/Cactus/repos/simfactory2/lib/", line 44 print "could not create logging directory \"%s\", %s" % (log_dir, e) ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax

The problem turned to be that I have Python3 as default, and Simfactory will only work with Python2. I got Python3 when installing Jupyter Notebook. I got help from Jonah Miller, and came with the solution:

conda create --name python2 python=2 anaconda mpich2 source activate python2

The tutorial may needs to specify that you need python2.
