Description Andreas Schneider 2018-07-03 14:26:23 UTC
We need to support building Samba with Python3 as distributions are removing support for Python2.

Alexander is working on migrating to waf 2.0.8.


This is a blocker for Samba 4.9rc1.
Comment 1 Andrew Bartlett 2018-07-03 19:10:30 UTC
Is this building only, or building and running?

An (ironic) build of samba --without-python is the only practical goal for 4.9, and even that will be hard work.
Comment 2 Björn Jacke 2020-03-19 00:36:41 UTC
this is fixed and should have been closed since quite a while
