hm, perhaps upstream. In Debian, the consensus was to keep
Python 2 working for old things until some time after the
release AIUI.

OK. Perhaps it’s not too much effort, and then, after the
unfreeze, things can get de-python2-ised in a controlled
way (reversely down the dependency tree from leaf packages
down to libraries).

I didn’t check to see how often it’s still used in Depends
or B-D (UDD might know), but perhaps just before the freeze
is a bit tight to introduce deep changes, especially as, in
my experience, not all upstreams are fast enough to adopt.

<mika> sorry, no idea and rebasing just fscked │<mika> Segmentation
<ch> should have cloned into a clean repo      │  fault (core dumped)
