Thanks. To be clear, I was only referring to python2 on Windows.  I don't know if the need for python 2 support on Unix went away, so i cant comment on it right​ now.

Honestly you (VMWare) and Redhat are the last two groups that I knew of that
care about python2 support (I haven't checked for a while obviously). If neither
of you feel it's important I'd prefer to actually rip it out and just support
python3 since that would simplify piglit and remove dependencies.

Even if you do care for not windows I don't have a problem saying that python2
on windows is unsupported.

It shouldn't be too hard to get the python stuff wired back in after the C/C++
builds are landed, I'm find reintegrating after you land your work.
