Description Miro Hrončok 2018-10-01 09:07:30 UTC
In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal [0], the following (sub)packages of lnst were marked for removal:

 * lnst

According to our query, those (sub)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].

This one seems bogus. I guess lnst is also a metapackage? Close as NOTABUG if that's the case.

Comment 2 Ondrej Lichtner 2018-10-01 13:01:07 UTC

I'm not sure what you mean by a meta package, I wasn't able to find a good definition of what that is.

But on the linked wiki page I see "unless some other package(s) depends on them."... well the lnst package actually contains the files of the lnst.Common python package that are used and required by the lnst-ctl lnst-slave sub-packages. Doesn't that satisfy the condition?

Yes, sorry about the noise.
