@yuvipanda, you added sbt to toollabs::dev_environ with d90368777c67f40c35e59cd7f5a5b898dbff89cb:

Toollabs: Add sbt to dev environments

Scala Build Tool, for anyone who wants to build scala things

Was there actual user demand for that, or could we just drop it?

I have moved /data/project/.system/deb-trusty/python3-statsd_3.0.1-1_all.deb and /data/project/.system/deb-{precise,trusty}/python-websocket-client_0.23.0-1_all.deb to ~tools.admin/archived-packages/ as they were not referenced by Puppet manifests.

I have also moved /data/project/.system/deb-{precise,trusty}/python-backports.ssl-match-hostname_3.4.0.2-1_all.deb to ~tools.admin/archived-packages/ as it was not referenced by Puppet manifests.

@yuvipanda, you have also added python-sh with 5a715f8069bcf649410801143c97c89cf29fb0ac:

tools: Add python-sh package to exec_environ

Package built and deployed to local repo

Was that due to user demand?

Yes, python-sh was used for one of my own tools (Such A Bot) but it uses a virtenv now so can be killed.

scfc added a subscriber: Legoktm.

@yuvipanda, what about sbt?

python-celery-with-redis is a "bundle" that "installs the following packages: ['celery>=3.0,<4.0', 'redis>=2.4.4']". However, if those specific versions were indeed wanted, they wouldn't be fulfilled by the current package as it just requires python-celery and python-redis unconditionally.

As Debian is very careful to stay backwards-compatible and we already require the packages python-celery and python-redis (via ::redis::client::python) in exec_environ.pp, I think that package should just be removed from Puppet and subsequently archived.

Ha! I got confused by my own clean-up: python-socketio-client depends on python-websocket-client which depends on python-backports.ssl-match-hostname. So one more package for backporting.

Change 238662 abandoned by Tim Landscheidt:
Tools: Source python-socketio-client for Trusty from backports

Reason:
Backports are now enabled on all Labs instances.

pywikibot no more support oursql, it has been replaced by PyMySQL which is available on toolforge. Probably the local oursql package can be removed.
