Bug ID: 1738025
Summary: libchewing depends on Python 2
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
CC: dingyichen(a)gmail.com, extras-orphan(a)fedoraproject.org,
Blocks: 1698500 (F31_PY2REMOVAL)
Target Milestone: ---
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
Python 2 will be retired in Fedora 32:
To help planning, we'd like to know the plans for libchewing's future.
- 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 libchewing.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.
