python35: add EOL announcement #89761

wants to merge 1 commit into from


Copy link

@wamserma wamserma commented Jun 7, 2020

Motivation for this change

Python 3.5 will be EOL three months from now. The warning hopefully prevents any dependencies on Python 3.5 sneaking into release 20.09.
External dependencies (e.g. in NUR) get a visible notification and have enough time to migrate.

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review pr 89761"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Unfortunately, it is not possible to use warnings like this because they will be printed by nix-env evaluation and trip up other tooling like you can see with ofborg here.

Yey, it trips ofborg, but there should be no more references to python35 once #89755 is merged, so ofborg should not evaluate this far in any other PR. Don' t know about Hydra, but local evaluations should not fail as it only prints the warning, pretty much as with the mlocate service.
