Hi All,

As we have discussed on IRC, I think that editors and python2 *lint* and *syntax*
checkers, should be exempt from this.

I'm for one use pycharm *a lot* and I'm expected/expecting to convert thousands of
python2 code to python3 code in the coming *years*, not months, years.

I'm perfectly fine installing python2 from the AUR for *running* python2 code, but
how can people be encouraged to convert python2 code without even being able to syntax
check it?

So, in that regards, editores/linters/syntax checkers/etc, should be exempt from this,
but *only* if they don't necessarily require python2 for that. As far as I know, pycharm
doesn't require python2 itself for syntax highlighting and lint. Don't know about the
others though.
