Change default python version in newinstall and lsstsw to Python3 for v14


    • Type: RFC
    • Status: Implemented
    • Resolution: Done
    • Component/s: DM
    • Labels:


      I propose that we change the default version of python 3 that is installed via newinstall or bin/deploy to be Python3. I would like this to be done for the v14 release so that we can make a statement that this is where we are heading. The release notes should absolutely state how to use python2 for a build. We regularly use python3 now and Jenkins has been testing it for ages and sims builds fine.

      This is not talking about removing python2. I am just saying that in the absence of any options given to these commands we should use python3.
