perhaps add them to meta-py2 first before this lands
Just a question: What is the plan with all those recipes which are
going to fail (most headaches I have with old waf): Will meta-oe /
meta-networking..., depend on meta-py2 or kick them out or?
What, not calling it the worst patch of the year? And the year's just
started... :)

1. Would you accept an apologize for that one?
Don't worry about that, let's file it under "overreaction due to stress"
category, shall we? :)
YES :)

2. I did not ask for stopping this - just asked how to continue and I
did that for certain reasons: For example: Few minutes ago we saw a
series for npm rework on oe-core. Unfortunately npm as is requires
python2 and many modules. Or the waf stuff: That means somebody has go
to all the projects and ask them for waf upgrade or prepare patches
there (and that means not just upgrading waf). So again: How do we
handle/get rid recipes requiring python2 to build?
Yes, all good points. I would agree with Khem - let's drop it and try to
fix as many issues as possible, while we still have time until the release.
Distros can have own dependency on meta-python2, but meta-openembedded and
openembedded-core should not depend on deprecated components, IMHO.
