I understand the drive to push for Python 2 removal and sympathize with it. The issue I had yesterday with the process is that "leaf" was wrongly defined, it was looking at Depends, instead of also including Build-Depends. I don't want to stand in the way of Python 2 removal, but as I said before, pulling packages out from underneath maintainers isn't pretty so needs to be done with proper notifications and care. An RC bug to ones own package is acceptable in my opinion as it is a clear discussion forum, and can be (temporarily) down-graded while the discussion is ongoing. Being notified about some other package that I not even need directly but is going to pull "my" package out of testing isn't a nice experience and should be avoided. Yes, that slows down the process, but there are people, emotions and all those irrational things involved. Paul
