I know that python2 is going to go away soon, but pykickstart dropping the python2 subpackage right now puts us in a bad spot.
python2-kickstart is used by python2-imgcreate which is in turn needed by appliance-tools, which is used to make all the Fedora appliance images. ;(
appliance-tools is python2 only and a dead end.
livemedia-creator now supports making appliances.
However, koji has not yet added a way for us to call it to do that.
As soon as that exists we will be moving to it.
So, could you consider keeping the python2-kickstart subpackage for a bit longer?
I have untagged the pykickstart that drops it for now since we are trying to get a rawhide compose (and have been for a while now).
Thanks and sorry we are in this mess. :(
CCing dcantrell, as he actually did the build in question.
Yeah, I can do that. The reason I turned it off for the most recent rawhide build was to bring things in line with the build for EL8. If Fedora still needs the python2 subpackages around for a while longer, I'll turn them back on. Not a problem.
Yes, that would be great. Thank you!
We will work on moving over to livemedia-creator for appliances.
There's actually not a lot needed to get appliance-creator moved to python 3. I just need to purge python-urlgrabber dependency, and then the whole thing can be switched over.
Also fixed in F28 as pykickstart-3.12-2.fc28
