Description Miro Hrončok 2018-09-10 15:24:19 UTC
In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal [0], the following (sub)packages of dput-ng were marked for removal:

 * python2-dput

According to our query, those packages only provide a Python 2 importable module. If this is not true, please tell us why, so we can fix our query.

Please remove them from your package.

As said in the change document, if there is no objection in a week, we will remove the package(s) as soon as we get to it. This change might not match your packaging style, so we'd prefer if you did the change. If you need more time, please let us know here.

We hope this doesn't come to you as a surprise. If you want to know our motivation for this, please read the change document [0].

Comment 1 Miro Hrončok 2018-09-18 11:07:01 UTC
dput-ng requires python2-dput, so this is false positive.

However, this seems very dead upstream. Is it still used in Debian? Can we ditch it entirely?

Comment 2 Miro Hrončok 2018-09-24 15:45:56 UTC
Can we ditch it entirely?

Comment 3 Michael Kuhn 2018-09-24 20:22:44 UTC
Sorry for the late reply. dput-ng is still used and I have just pushed an update to version 1.21 that gets rid of the Python 2 subpackage.

Comment 4 Miro Hrončok 2018-09-24 20:33:52 UTC
Python 3 \o/

Thank you.
