    configure.ac: error out when building from git without python3
    Bail early, as opposed to later on during the build.

Comment 1 Emil Velikov 2016-05-25 12:56:13 UTC
I wouldn't call it regression but intentional change ;-)

The long term goal is to port the python2 scripts to python3. Thus adding a list of generated sources and/or other heuristics in configure is fragile and not going to scale.

Is python3 not available on your system, which distribution are you using here ?
Comment 2 Vinson Lee 2016-05-25 18:59:57 UTC
Mac OS X and CentOS do not have Python 3.

Comment 4 Emil Velikov 2016-06-01 15:09:44 UTC
The script that inspired this change was made python2 compatible and the requirement was removed with the series ending

    Don't use python 3
    Now there are not files that require python 3, so for now just remove
    the python 3 dependency and use python 2. I think the right plan is to
    just get all of the python ready for python 3, and then use whatever
    python is available.
