HEADS UP: venus 2.80 will switch to python3

Venus v2.80 will (from v2.80~3 to be exact) switch to python3 and will then no longer provide python2. So for people running their own python code, either disable automatic updates or make the code work with python3.

Thanks Jeroen, this will be good as there are major changes between Python2.7 and 3.8 - Having to re-code python for 2.7 from 3 was a pain...

That is not what this message is about, you could install python3 already, iow opkg install python3-core python3-... This is a warning that python2 will be gone completely and python3 will be installed by default instead.

Sorry, yes, but this is good news though.
