Task #1293

Updated by dkliban@redhat.com almost 5 years ago

Fedora 23 is currently scheduled to be released on November 3rd. October 27. I did some research[0] to try to find out what Pulp needs to do, and it sounds like we need to recommend that Fedora users install Python 2 (it won't be installed by default anymore on Workstation or Cloud.) According to PEP-394[1], Unix distributions should keep /usr/bin/python pointing to a Python 2 distribution if one is installed.

However the PEP also states that due to at least one distribution (Arch) already shipping Python 3 as /usr/bin/python, /usr/bin/python *should* be used for applications that are compatible with both Python 2 and 3. It recommends that applications that are only compatible with Python 2 should use /usr/bin/python2.
