`_py2_depends` and `_py3_depends` are more consistent with the other variable names and preferable to '_py2_deps' and '_py3_deps' in my opinion.

Agreed, but I've removed all of the Python 2 details entirely pending the coming EoL. --Ddevault (talk) 15:10, 24 January 2020 (UTC)



_pyname is much less common than _pkgname although _pkgname is used for many things; would be good to have a clear recommended name

_pyname was per ncopa's suggestion, I don't have a problem with it. --Ddevault (talk) 15:10, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

my only issue with _pyname is that it is less common; I agree _pkgname is more common and longer term consistency would be good, we had a discussion about it today on IRC; the consensus there is that it is a private variable and the name doesn't matter. --Keith.maxwell (talk) 09:25, 12 April 2020 (UTC)

a good argument for _pyname from IRC is that "More descriptive names are preferable, _pkgname doesn't really tell much" Keith.maxwell (talk) 09:38, 12 April 2020 (UTC)
