Subject [DISCUSS] Deprecate Python < 3.6 in Spark 3.0
Date Thu, 24 Oct 2019 08:10:19 GMT
Hi everyone,

While deprecation of Python 2 in 3.0.0 has been announced
<https://spark.apache.org/news/plan-for-dropping-python-2-support.html>,
there is no clear statement about specific continuing support of
different Python 3 version.

Specifically:

  * Python 3.4 has been retired this year.
  * Python 3.5 is already in the "security fixes only" mode and should
    be retired in the middle of 2020.

Continued support of these two blocks adoption of many new Python
features (PEP 468)  and it is hard to justify beyond 2020.

Should these two be deprecated in 3.0.0 as well?

Best regards,
Maciej
