The latest lsb (lsb 4.0-0ubuntu13) package lsb-release depends on python3, which depends on python3.2.

These can of course coexist with the old python2.7 (from Natty), but it is evedent that python 2.7 will be dropped.

Great. Does it mean Eric5 will be in as well?

i dont think they will drop it, as it takes a long long time to rebuild all python packages with 3.x .Fedora are slowly rebuilding python packages for 3.x only but its a long slow process.

There are still some very popular modules that depend on Python 2.x, i.e. Twisted and SciPy. I don't quite think we're ready to ditch those ;)

2.7 won't be dropped, but 2.6 certainly will.

Just wanted to try Eric5 and saw that there is no Eric5 but Eric4, why not if theres python3.2? Eric4 uses python2 and Eric5 python3.

Yes, Python 2 is picking up speed towards obsolescence now that Qt and GTK3 work fine on Python 3. GTK apps have to convert from PyGTK to GObject Introspection first which is a bigger switch than the Python 3 transition.

See https://blueprints.launchpad.net/python/+spec/foundations-o-python-versions where a goal for Ubuntu 12.04 is switching the main CD to Python 3 exclusively. Python 2 will stay in the repositories for quite a while though.

By the way, Arch has set python3 as the default python, which surprised me when I noticed that this week.

I didn't realize there was an Eric 5. I'll take a look at it this week. I think Debian is staying with Eric 4 for now, but I can ask.

Ok, I followed up on eric5. The issue is that Debian hasn't yet packaged python3-qt4. See http://pad.lv/400826 .
