Hi team,

My name is Francisco Vilmar Cardoso Ruviaro, I would like to be part of the
team, recently Samuel Henrique sponsored ProtonVPN-CLI [0], the package is in

mercurial/5.4.1-2 has just been uploaded to unstable, switching it to
use python3.

can you explain this point? i think if a new developer starts with
python3 now (and i have plenty of examples at my company) they just
use `python3` on the commandline, shebangs, venv, etc. I dont see the
confusion we would create.

I dont think that's the right decision. PEP 0394
( allows distribution not to
ship `python` at all:

* If the python command is installed, it is expected to invoke either
the same version of Python as the python3 command or as the python2
* Distributors may choose to set the behavior of the python command as follows:
** python2,
** python3,
** not provide python command,
** allow python to be configurable by an end user or a system administrator.

it is my opinion that that's what we should do: not ship `python` at
all and have users/packagers/developers use either python2 or python3
as needed, and not to reintroduce `python` at a later time.

this is now the case: bin:python-dbus has no more reverse dependencies
(that are not RC and/or being removed from testing), see dak output:

Checking reverse dependencies...
# Broken Depends:
dbus-python: python-dbus-dbg  **Internal deps
ladish: ladish   ** removed from testing in May 2020
neard: neard-tools   ** removed from testing in Dec 2019
wicd: wicd-daemon   ** removed from testing in Oct 2019

So please proceed with drooping python-dbus as soon as possible.
Currently python-dbus is the sole rdep of python-gi, which then could
be dropped when python-dbus is gone.

Let me know if you need help with this activity: i'm available to NMU
or team upload src:dbus-python if that's preferred

2020-07-16 Thread Jojo


I'd like to join the debian python modules and application teams to be 
able to push my gbp packing sources to

I've read and understood

Packages are:

- python3-discogs-client (using pristine tar)
  source package name: python-discogs-client

- python3-webdavclient(using pristine tar)
  source package name: python-discogs-client

- discodos (not using pristine tar)

zigo was helping/mentoring the packaging and is about to do the final 
reviews and ftp uploads.

thanks a lot

I don't agree Geert is being rude. Besides that, I know Geert (from
Debconfs) to be a nice and polite person that isn't rude with others.

Please assume good faith.
