With the end of life of python 2 on Jan 1st, 2020, the Lonestar5 system is scheduled to set python 3 as the default python module after the scheduled maintenance on Tuesday, 04 February 2020. All current python 2 users are advised to modify the header of their python scripts to the path "/bin/python". More details on porting to python 3 can be obtained from the following references:
