Nice work everyone! I’d be curious to see what a “Python 2 deprecation” page would look like (although deprecating Python 2 support shouldn’t be the goal of course)

For many of the major scientific libraries, the goal is to deprecate Python 2.7 no later than 2020:


Considering 2.7 is EOL in 2020, I'm thinking the default policy position of any serious library should be to deprecate 2.7 by 2020.

Based on having worked for 3 corporations using python I can tell you it's not going to happen by 2020. Python 2.7 will live on in big companies for a couple more decades. I will end my career before python 3 is adopted. It's more likely that by that time some other scripting language will be more popular.
