Might make sense to wait to mask them at the same time as masking python 2.7 itself? Maybe file a bug if not already done to make maintainers aware that this is coming? I assume the python team is the one deciding when python 2.7 has to go (after all, who else is going to maintain it?). The fact that this is about a month off did come up in another recent thread but I don't think it was intended as a formal announcement. -- Rich
