Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-159) Require Python3 for all scripts
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 01:03:04 GMT
Sebb created COMDEV-159:
---------------------------

             Summary: Require Python3 for all scripts
                 Key: COMDEV-159
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-159
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Reporter Tool
            Reporter: Sebb


Some of the scripts require Python3 and some require Python2

I think some may work with either, but this can be tricky to maintain.

Python3 has been out for quite a while now, and is generally better.
In particular, I/O is more easily controllable - no spurious spaces or newline chars!

For ease of maintenance, perhaps now is the time to drop support for Python2

Note this may mean changes to crontab entries, and CGI scripts need careful handling
