Handing over Python maintenance and Python 3 as Default
by Bohuslav Kabrda
for past two years I've been paid by Red Hat to work on Python maintenance in Fedora (among other things). Since I'm now moving to a different position inside Red Hat, I'll be handing over my work to some of my fellow teammates:
- python and python3 will be maintained by Matej Stuchlik (mstuchli at redhat.com) from now on
- Python 3 as Default effort will be continued by Robert Kuska (rkuska at redhat.com)
I'll be staying in this awesome community, I just won't be able to dedicate that much time to it. Matej and Robert have been working with me for quite some time on the above things and they'll do an excelent job.
Thank you for your attention,
Proposal to require python3-supporting modules to be packaged for python3
by Jason L Tibbitts III
I've not posted here before, but I've been becoming more familiar with
python and have been doing some work on the various guidelines in my
capacity as an FPC member.
I was kind of surprised that with the push for "python 3 as default" we
don't actually have a guideline that modules supporting python3 actually
be packaged for python3. (Or at least I'm blind enough not to see it.)
So I filed this:
I do all of my work in python3 these days, and of course I keep running
into things I'd like to use which support python3 that are only packaged
for python2. I know I should just use virtualenv and not worry about
what's packaged but if we really want to go all in on python3 then we
should try to make sure our packages support it when the upstreams do.
