Re: [opensuse-factory] Friendly warning: Python 2 is going to be removed from Factory on 2020-01-02

this is just your periodic remainder (which could be expected for
the last 10+ years or so, so there shouldn't be any surprise)
that on the bright fresh chilly morning of 2020-01-02 we are
going to remove python2 package (that's Python 2.7.* interpreter)
from Factory.

You should really really make sure to check all your tools have
been already ported and tested on Python 3 right NOW.

I do not think that the Mozilla buildsystem (speaking of Firefox,
Thunderbird and seamonkey at least) is Python3-only ready yet.

The likeliness that this happens in time before 2020 is rather low.

So this is just a friendly warning that I will not and also cannot make
sure that Firefox et al will build without Python 2.7 in time.
I will keep trying it though.
In worst case I hope that we still can have it for building without
publishing in the "normal distro"?
