#2325 F33 Self-Contained Change: Retire python34
Closed: Accepted 2 years ago by decathorpe. Opened 2 years ago by bcotton.

The python34 package will be retired without replacement from Fedora 33. Python 3.4 has been End of Life since March 2019 and was kept around only to test software targeting EPEL 6 and Debian 8 “Jessie”. The removal is aligned with EPEL 6 EOL and happens after the EOL of Debian 8.

This is my change but I don't consider it controversial, hence I shamelessly +1.

I found it quite useful at times to have those old versions of python to check behaviour and syntax and such other details, but I understand why you don't want to maintain them.


For such cases, one can podman to an old Fedora:

$ podman run -ti fedora:23 /usr/bin/python3
