Install a version of Python newer than 3.5.3 in Toolforge
Open, Needs TriagePublic


e.g. current version only support Python 3.6+ (due to sparql-slurper dependency), but Toolforge only have Python 3.5.3. So it's not possible to run WikidataIntegrator without manually compile a newer version of Python.

stretch doesn't have python3.6 so as per suggestion from bstorm, I'm going to skip to python3.7 since it's available on buster

python37/web (specifically toollabs-webservice) needs python-pykube which doesn't look like it's available in buster

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 toollabs-webservice : Depends: python-pykube but it is not installable

I think similar to, we need to forward-port python-pykube to buster. Will talk to @aborrero for help.

Change 543124 had a related patch set uploaded (by Phamhi; owner: Hieu Pham):
[operations/docker-images/toollabs-images@master] Update all images based on buster (T230961)

I might as well extend the scope of this ticket to update all docker images based on buster.

This means the following new language versions will be available:

  • Golang 1.11
  • JDK 11
  • PHP 7.3
  • Python 3.7
  • Ruby2.5
  • (possibly more to come)

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-operations) [2019-10-15T12:13:08Z] <arturo> add copy of python-pykube and python3-pykube from stretch-wikimedia to buster-wikimedia (T230961)

It looks like toollabs-webservice is not in buster-tools... will ask for help from arturo again to port this package
