#533 might be relevant and there is another issue (or PR) where we discuss what "LTS" means in terms of the default Python version.

@betatim that issue is around RStudio. Did you mean #521? That mentions LTS.

I think #521 is unrelated, since it's about what version of python the repo2docker code should support, rather than the default for images built with repo2docker.

Yes I think I meant #521. Not sure why I wrote 533. Looking now I might have meant #522 and the discussion about what the default version of Python is that will be installed in a conda environment.

I think the discussion in #521 is related despite it being about the version of Python required to run r2d. We should make some promises about which version of Python ends up in an image by default. I consider the version of the tools we install part of what we version. Similar to a library that versions its API and default arguments etc.

I don't know what our strategy should be but I do think we should decide on a strategy and write it down so that users can rely on it and plan accordingly.
