the alioth mailing list is full of spam

2019-12-30 Thread shirish शिरीष
Dear all,

See [1] . All the messages therein are spam. If it not being used
maybe people can write to the alioth admin [2] and let him know that
either the service is not required or perhaps somehow get it cleaned
up. In November, only one mail was of interest which was of py2removal
otherwise the rest were also spam. I know it's supposed to be a time
limited service according to its own pages [3] but they haven't shared
any concrete plans for it, at least publically.

would anybody be interested in maintaining feed2toot ?

2019-11-19 Thread shirish शिरीष
Hi all,

I recently discovered feed2toot. It basically maintains a bot which
can help in re-directing traffic from blog, vlogs, youtube etc. to
fediverse. In a way it's a content re-director. It basically takes an
RSS feed and re-directs it any of the mastodon social networks.

I have already filed an RFP #945075 . Am open to testing it out if
somebody is willing to put in the time.

Looking forward to know if somebody takes this up :)

I just read Andrey's mail at
https://lists.debian.org/debian-python/2018/06/msg00024.html . Please
CC me if somebody replies.

Maybe it would have been better to say that right now python gives

$ python --version
Python 2.7.15

To be more precise,  I meant to know if 'Bullseye' i.e Debian 11 would
have python 3.0 as default or not.

Could somebody change the alioth documentation, have a buster roadmap and know what's missing to move to python 3 entirely.

2018-06-06 Thread shirish शिरीष
Dear Friends,

I was just looking for documentation about what's keeping us from
getting to python 3 but couldn't find anything which I could lay my
finger on.

I did find some obsolete documentation though on the wiki. The entries
can be seen at -

https://wiki.debian.org/Python

and

https://wiki.debian.org/Python/Python3Port

The list addresses are of alioth glven therein. I am guessing most of
those mails have been submerged in debian-python debian mailing list
(i.e. here) probably.

I was also looking for a BusterRoadmap on lines of the Stretch roadmap
and the Jessie roadmap from before but didn't find anything :(

https://wiki.debian.org/Python/StretchRoadmap
https://wiki.debian.org/Python/JessieRoadmap

I have also been trying to understand which packages/modules are
remaining for python 3 to be the default-python

$ apt-cache policy python
python:
  Installed: 2.7.15~rc1-1
  Candidate: 2.7.15~rc1-1
  Version table:
 *** 2.7.15~rc1-1 500
500 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian buster/main amd64 Packages
100 http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Look forward to answers. I do remember of times reading documentation
when the stdlib did not have all the libraries of a particular 3.x
version. I also remember reading somewhere that we still used lot of
python 2 scripts. Another could be that 2.7 will have support till
2020.

In either way having a roadmap would be nice.
