            Bug ID: 156674
           Summary: Build tools should work when the /usr/bin/python is
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build

            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P2

The build tools fail when the default python is python 3. This is currently worked around by telling the user to change their environment:


A better solution is to either:

- Change the shebangs and such everywhere to #!/usr/bin/env python2, which should work on all systems
- Make the Python code work on both Python 2 and Python 3

Currently working on patches that use the first solution, and then will consider patches that work towards the second solution.
