Description Lumír Balhar 2019-08-08 11:45:10 UTC
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 ccnet's future. Specifically:

- What is the reason for the Python2 dependency? (Is it software written in Python, or does it just provide Python bindings, or use Python in the build system or test runner?) 

- 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 ccnet.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.

Thank you.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 31 development cycle.
Changing version to '31'.

Comment 3 Lumír Balhar 2019-08-16 09:07:45 UTC
Please answer the above questions. If you don't, the package can be orphaned: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Information_on_Remaining_Packages

If you need any information or help, or if you need some more time, please let us know.

1. The software is partially written in Python.
2. Port to Python 3 is planed in 2019: https://github.com/haiwen/seafile/issues/2112 (ccnet is required by seafile and is developed by the same company). (no news on this thought, I know work is being done for a dependency. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1738017 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1739010)
3. I am tracking the issue. I think we should wait for the upstream work to be completed.
