    Phoronix: Fedora 33 To Finally Kill Off Python 2.6 Support

    Separate from the whole Python 2 removal effort with the Python 2.7 that is EOL'ed since the start of the year, Fedora 33 due out later this year is looking to be their first release dropping the even older Python 2.6 series...

    Technically, one can still get a (presumably expensive) Extended Life Cycle Support (ELS) contract for EL6 for which critical fixes may be able to be provided until the end of June 2024 for licensed server platforms, but for all practical purposes EL6 (and its work-alikes) are frozen after November 30 2020 (whatever is shall remain as it is).

      Nice to finally see Python 2 go away.
      Python 3 is nicer, the Unicode handling is so much better.

        it was clear that removing python 2 will not be easy for distributions as it was not easy for the python developers as well...

          There's a typo in the headline. It's not Python 2.6 but 2.7.

              Read the source. Oh my God. You're right. Mind blown.

                I'm very surprised.
                I thought that we were in the process of removing Python 2(.7) support, not Python 2.6 !
