Re: [Gimp-developer] Future of Python v2 scripts

While it is is feasible to have Python3 as the system default install,
it is not practical to remove Python2 from the system. Even if it is
not installed by default (which I doubt very much) it will be
reachable via the default packaging system (and therefore available as
a GIMP dependency).

Anyway, even if we switched today to Python3 for GIMP, it would only
be available as of GIMP 2.10 - so GIMP 2.8 would still use Python2

I think they were talking about this, but it was not ready in time.
15.10 still has python2 as the default. They are now talking about
making the change in 16.04 instead, but of course who knows if it will
actually happen.

You're absolutely correct that Gimp should be ready for this. No doubt
many other distributions will also make this change.
