Description haarp 2020-01-14 16:22:27 UTC

app-admin/salt-2019.2.2 has recently had its python2_7 PYTHON_TARGET removed. When using Gentoo as a Salt SSH Master (using salt-ssh), it has now become impossible to manage targets still using python-2.7:

        ERROR: Python version error. Recommendation(s) follow:
        - Install Python 2.6/2.7 Salt dependencies on the Salt SSH
          master to interact with Python 2.6/2.7 targets
        - Install Python 3 on the target machine(s)

I'd like to request that this PYTHON_TARGET stick around a little longer. Unfortunately installing Python 3 on the target machines is not yet possible in my use case.

I would have left it around longer as well, but the python team decided to remove python2_7 from many of salt's dependencies, making this infeasible.
