python-support: adjust major versions The plan previously documented was <=1.13.x is Python 2 and >=1.14.x is Python 3. Other projects that migrated Python versions and drop support for older have tended to take a more drastic version jump to make it clearer to users. So lets adjust the plan to say <=1.x will support Python 2, and >=2.x will be Python 3-only. This also allows us to harmonize the repo launcher version. It is currently sitting at v1.26 and has been incremented independently of the repo version for the life of the project. While we might know these lower nuances, pretty much no one else does and it just leads to confusion: do I know version 1.26 or version 1.13.7? Or do I have both? What does that even mean? Once we update the major version to 2.0.0, we can also adjust the launcher script to 2.0.0, and then the launcher release process will be tied to a new repo release in general.

Repo is a tool built on top of Git. Repo helps manage many Git repositories, does the uploads to revision control systems, and automates parts of the development workflow. Repo is not meant to replace Git, only to make it easier to work with Git. The repo command is an executable Python script that you can put anywhere in your path.
