Hi Matteo,

The timeline for removing python2 is "before bullseye." Because it will take a long time, the effort has started now. We are starting with leaf packages, of which presage is one, so that is why I've poked this bug. :)

Hi Scott,

Someone approached me and volunteered to port presage to Python 3 in late
October, but I haven't heard back since them.

Let me take a look at what kind of an effort it would be to port to python
3: that would be my preferred option if I can find the time to do.

Else, the suggestion to remove the python pieces sound like the next best
thing, if I can't find the time to port to python 3 now, we can then later
reintroduce the python pieces.

What are the planned timelines for the python 2 removal?

Alternatively, perhaps just the Python pieces of presage can be removed,
as those don't seem to have any rdepends?
