Summary

Update the system Python in Fedora to 2.6

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 11
  • Last updated: 2008-12-13
  • Percentage of completion: 60%

Detailed Description

Python 2.6 was released on October 1, 2008, too close to the release of Fedora 10 to be included in it.

Benefit to Fedora

Fedora is about pushing the boundaries, and having Python 2.6 as a transitional release on the path to Python 3000 is no exception.

Scope

Python is pervasive in Fedora. Everything from yum to system-config-* to anaconda to pungi is written in Python.

How To Test

(work ongoing)

User Experience

  1. Users should not notice any difference, other than the availability of the 2.6 interpreter

Dependencies

  • (list too large to include here; around 850 packages)

Contingency Plan

  • There is none. This is do-or-die.

Documentation

What's New in Python 2.6
