Python 2.7 will reach end-of-life in January 2020, over 9 years after it was released. This falls within the Fedora 31 lifetime.
Packages that depend on Python 2 are being switched to Python 3 or removed from Fedora: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Information_on_Remaining_Packages
Python 2 will be retired in Fedora 32: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RetirePython2
To help planning, we'd like to know the plans for moksha's future. Specifically:
- What are the upstream/community plans/timelines regarding Python 3?
- What is the guidance for porting to Python 3? (Assuming that there is someone who generally knows how to port to Python 3, but doesn't know anything about the particular package, what are the next steps to take?)
This bug is filed semi-automatically, and might not have all the context specific to moksha.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.
Please provide the requested information.
Please provide the requested information or drop the package.
"After 3 such comments, the package can be orphaned (through a releng ticket)"
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.
This also doesn't install or build, for the record.
"Packages still failing to install due to a missing Python 2 dependency will be retired at Beta Freeze, assuming they have a Bugzilla bug open for at least 2 weeks. The package maintainer may postpone this retirement to the Final Freeze by promising to fix it until then."
There is no maintainer, so let me just retire it right away. Done...
Let me know if you need help getting it back once it can be built and installed. I will gladly re-review it.
Requesting a freeze exception based on https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2216#comment-593925
Note fedmsg depends on moksha; if moksha goes we lose all of fedmsg.
I've verified that the package is gone from the fedora repo. Thanks and sorry for panicking.
