I've been using https://pypi.org/project/Deprecated/ for quite some time and I recommend it.

Would it be interesting to create a @deprecated decorator to avoid adding warnings.warn("deprecation message", DeprecationWarning, stacklevel=2) in methods body?
Using the decorator approach to indicate depreciation would make the methods cleaner (leaving only their responsibilities in the body) and would be easier to identify, as the cue would be close to the method signature and not mixed with the logic inside the body.
in some cases it will still be necessary to put warnings.warn (..) inside the body of functions/methods because of some message display condition, or we could also express the message display condition in the decorator in @deprecated itself. But it would be interesting to have the possibility of not putting this inside the method body. Even the decorator can come from the notices module.
