Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-10190) Python 3 support for cqlsh
Date Mon, 07 Oct 2019 04:51:00 GMT


Andy Tolbert commented on CASSANDRA-10190:

I think it's worth updating the driver to a newer version

I just read the comments earlier in the thread about the driver, mainly this one:

Finally, extracting the checked in driver is something we'll look into. But that is a longpole
and strictly not needed for Python 3 compatibility.

Agree with that, don't think that should hold things up, it can be done out of band.  Noticed
that I had already opened up a ticket of updating the python driver a while back for a different
reason ([CASSANDRA-14872]), and there's probably other 4.0 specific reasons it needs to be
updated, so would be good to do that separately.
