[Pulp-dev] Fwd: Status of pulp-python

Hello Christoph,

The Python plugin isn't abandoned, but we have not been able to maintain it
due to other higher priority issues for other plugins. Our best case
scenario would be to find a user or users who use the Python plugin and are
interested in helping maintain this plugin.  We would definitely be able to
support those efforts including PR reviews and help with coming up to speed
on how to contribute.

I'd suggest a first step of working with Daniel (Python plugin maintainer)
to come up with a gap analysis on what you would need from the Python
plugin for your use cases. We could commit to PR reviews on bug fixes but
no feature development in the near future (this next calendar quarter
already planned out commitments.) To be realistic, I would recommend
someone from your organization know how to send PR for any future
discovered critical bugs to make this a feasible option. I'm anticipating
together you may discover some additional efforts like CI/test fixes or
releasing a new version that may be needed as well since it's probably a
bit behind on that. Those aren't off the table but I'd support Daniel
spending some time to figure out where we are with this. Does that sound
like something you would be interested in?
