Any objections to dropping 2.6 support?
- 2.7 was introduced in 2010
@Rollin_King’s made the switch
- more important to work on 3.5 compatibility than 2.6
- like with C++11, it’d be nice to use new-ish language features (cleaner printing, dictionary comprehensions, etc.)
While I’m at it, among 2to3, futurize, six, ad hoc redefinition of fns, etc., does anyone have preferences for maintaining 2- & 3-compatible code?
No objections from me on dropping 2.6 support.
I like it. The python 3 shift is slowly coming, I’d like to focus our efforts there.
Next Ubuntu is based on Python 3 instead of Python 2.
Doesn’t matter for our binary users because they use a bundled python anyway, right? If so, I don’t object to dropping 2.6.
Right, this is a non-issue for binary users.
