Python 2.7 update?


During the Indico update (CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 , Python 2.7.5) we noticed following messages.

$ pip install -U indico
DEPRECATION: Python 2.7 will reach the end of its life on January 1st, 2020. Please upgrade your Python as Python 2.7 won't be maintained after that date. A future version of pip will drop support for Python 2.7.
Requirement already up-to-date: indico in ./.venv/lib/python2.7/site-packages (2.1.7)

How can we do so ?


Our goal is to have a Python 3 version of Indico available when major distributions drop support for Python 2.7.
This is unlikely to happen immediately when Python 2.7 goes EOL, since the big linux distributions won’t drop something as big as Python 2 while the release using it is still supported.

So you can safely ignore this warning.
