Fedora is actively deprecating Python 2 for Python 3 and as of just a few days ago, the change was made that
/usr/bin/python is no longer symlinked to
/usr/bin/python3. I rebuilt the latest 2019-07-14 snapshot and it fails with, you guessed it, Python errors.
As Python 2 is soon to be EOL'ed (as noted by this amusing site) I was wondering if there was any "official" plan to upgrade the build scripts to Python 3. I was thinking to do it and apply a set of patches to make Swift build on Fedora, but am happy to contribute them back as pull requests. That said, I don't want to duplicate others work, so if nobody's actively working on it, mind if I go ahead and do it?
