python 2 check & cleaning
Mon Jan 18 05:33:09 GMT 2021
the current python test packages remove the link python->python2.7
and replace with an alternative appraouch.
Before making the switch, I would like to review the packages that could
be broken, so I looked at all packages, not in "python*-*" form,
that pull one of the "python", "python2" and "python27" using
$ cygcheck-dep -O -S -q -n python..
There are almost 200 binary packages
(of the almost 9000 currently present on 64 bit)
The list with source package and maintainer is here:
I know that Mercurial need rebuild, and I assume the same
for subversion (that I plan to adopt).
Could you please check your packages if they will work with
preferred python3.8 ?
Texlive and fontforge seem the most urgent, IMHO, for a verification.
As python2 is officially dead, a fast switch is nice to have
without braking too many critical packages.
Thanks in advance & Regards
