#2879 Change: Deprecate python-toml
Closed: Accepted 11 months ago by zbyszek. Opened a year ago by bcotton.

The python3-toml package will be deprecated in Fedora 38. The upstream toml package is considered unmaintained (see description) and Python 3.11 contains a TOML-reading library in the standard library. Existing Fedora packages depend on python3-toml, so we cannot remove it yet. Packagers are encouraged to work with upstreams to switch to tomllib/tomli for reading toml or tomli-w for writing it. But python3-toml remains available until it is a leaf package, it will be removed then (possibly not yet in Fedora 38).

Owners, do not implement this work until the FESCo vote has explicitly ended.
The Fedora Program Manager will create a tracking bug in Bugzilla for this Change, which is your indication to proceed.
See the FESCo ticket policy and the Changes policy for more information.

I tidied up the markup in the issue text, which didn’t transfer very well from the wiki page.
