Python 2.x was declared end-of-life in January 2020, and is no longer
receiving updates, even for security problems.  So it should continue to
work as well as it did in 2019, as long as you can maintain the required
compatible libraries, but over time it may become more and more difficult
to maintain the required associated software without just freezing the
system at a known working revision.
