Context: raise a warning or remove tempfile.mktemp()
Since 2.3, this function is deprecated in the documentation, just in the
documentation. In the code, there is a commented RuntimeWarning.
Commented by Guido in 2002, because the warning was too annoying (and I
So, in this BPO, we start to discuss about the future of this function
and Serhiy proposed to discuss on the Python-dev mailing list.
Question: Should we drop it or add a (Pending)DeprecationWarning?
Suggestion and timeline:
3.8, we raise a PendingDeprecationWarning
* update the code
* update the documentation
* update the tests
(check a PendingDeprecationWarning if sys.version_info == 3.8)
3.9, we change PendingDeprecationWarning to DeprecationWarning
(check DeprecationWarning if sys.version_info == 3.9)
3.9+, we drop tempfile.mktemp()
What do you suggest?
Have a nice day and thank you for your feedback.
