For reasons outlined at
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1388447#c7, we would like to
make Python 3 a requirement to build Firefox sometime in the Firefox 59
development cycle. (Firefox 59 will be an ESR release.)

The requirement will likely be Python 3.5+. Although I would love to make
that 3.6 if possible so we can fully harness modern features and

I would love to hear feedback - positive or negative - from downstream
packagers and users of various operating systems and distributions about
this proposal.

Please send comments to dev-builds at lists.mozilla.org or leave them on bug
dev-platform mailing list
