#924 Python 2 guidelines: Remove entirely - now or after F31 EOL?
Closed: fixed 7 months ago by churchyard. Opened 2 years ago by churchyard.

Based on the https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RetirePython2 change, the Python 2 guidelines are now supposed to be completely removed, unless the FPC wants to keep them until Fedora 31 EOL.

What is your opinion?

  • Keep until F31 EOL


  • Remove now


I see no reason not to get rid of them. However, it may be useful to shift them over to EPEL somehow. Given that they're no longer just wiki pages, I'm not sure how best to do that.

Yeah, I figure at this point anyone who needs guidelines for Python needs them for 3, and most dealing with 2 know what they're doing.

In broad strokes. :)

So after all this time I'm not entirely sure that this got done. I still see some mention of python2 in Python_Appendix.adoc, as well as the Python_201x.adoc document (which I suppose is fine). I also see some mention in MPI.adoc and EnvironmentModules.adoc which might be a separate topic but should probably still be looked at. The main guidelines seem to be mostly free of Python2-related mentions except for the note that there may be other interpreter packages in the distro (which is still the case).

Yes, I consider this done. Sorry for not closing this ooner.
