I’ve just deployed MongoDB Community Edition to a CentOS 8 system using the repo detailed here:
I noticed that the installation prompted a number of Python 2 packages to be installed as a dependency.
Querying the mongodb-org-server package confirms the dependency:
rpm -qR mongodb-org-server | grep python
As Python 2 was sunset at the beginning of last year:
CentOS 8 uses Python 3 by default.
I’m not sure what the dependency on Python 2 is but, are there any known plans to move to Python 3?
