Subject [jira] [Created] (COMDEV-160) Use "python3" rather than "python3.4" as the command name
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 23:06:04 GMT
Sebb created COMDEV-160:
---------------------------

             Summary: Use "python3" rather than "python3.4" as the command name
                 Key: COMDEV-160
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMDEV-160
             Project: Community Development
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Projects New, Reporter Tool
            Reporter: Sebb


The crontabs currently use python3.4 to run the scripts.
However this symlinked to python3, so the two are currently equivalent.

Unless the scripts actually need version 3.4 - and no other - it does not make sense to use
the specific version. Using python3 will make a Python upgrade much simpler - no need to edit
all the crontabs, as they will pick up the whatever is the current version.

[If a script does specifically require Python 3.4, then it should check this and report an
error.]
