Python 2.7 will reach EOL in 18 months. Let's start to warn users that Python 2 will no longer be supported in the future.
Metadata Update from @tdudlak:
- Issue close_status updated to: fixed
- Issue status updated to: Closed (was: Open)
What is the ticket to remove the Python 2 support completely (given this one is closed already)?
Is the plan to really release a new major version of FreeIPA, i.e. FreeIPA 5.0, with the Python 3.6+ support? CC @abbra - this would impact also RHEL downstream packaging of course
@mkosek The ticket was mainly about deprecation, not removal. Commit https://pagure.io/freeipa/c/f1c7d3c27839709808f67791274215fd2555ad40 added a deprecation warning, so users are aware that their Python 2 code will break with the next release.
For removal, I can either open a new ticket or re-open this ticket.
By the way, I created a Fedora change request for removal of Python 2 packages, https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FreeIPA_Python_2_Removal .
