Moving to progressbar2 #2

As far as I remember, gcp is using the old progress bar library, which lacks maintenance in Python 3.

I prefer the new progressbar library progressbar2 which is well maintained and supports both Python 2 and Python 3.

Can gcp move to progressbar2?

BTW, just say Hi :)

I guess that's a good idea. I'll look into it, thanks! (And hi :-)

A new version of the original progressbar was released in June, with better Python3 support (it seems):
https://pypi.org/project/progressbar/#history

There is also a case in Debian to possibly switch to progressbar2, and I would like for it to be resolved before deciding to switch, since using progressbar2 would most likely break gcp in Debian (and possibly other distros):
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=839149

That being said, as I wrote in reply to this Debian bug report, progressbar2 inspires more confidence and switching would still probably be a good idea.
