A module is deprecated when it cannot or will not be maintained indefinitely in the standard library. Deprecated modules may not receive security fixes or other important updates. See PEP 4 for a list of all deprecated modules.


Do not import the deprecated module. Replace uses of it with uses of a better maintained module.
