Re: Python 2.7 status on Ubuntu Maverick

Of course, this only helps with extension module packages, since as you know, any incompatibilities with pure-Python packages can't be determined until install time. One of my next steps is to create a Maverick VM and install as much of the Python rdeps as possible, collecting information on what fails to byte-compile.

In sid there are two packages with python2.7-specific bytecompilation errors: mgltools-viewerframework and python-jaxml. Both packages do something like:

import sys
sys.__debug__ = something

which is a syntax error in Python 2.7.
