Also it seems that many of the fixes/hacks are not needed:

  • cit, clang-format, clang_format_merge_driver, compile_single_file, download_from_google_storage, gn can all be run with python3
  • fetch, gclient and roll-dep even depend on python3 (through vpython3) now

error: RPC failed; HTTP 408 curl 22 The requested URL returned error: 408

@jose1711 Thanks. Updated.

The ninja wrapper is broken, it should pass through parameters instead of discarding them.

Seems to be broken:

==> Starting prepare()...
sed: can't read depot-tools-auth: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Error making: depot-tools-git

Looks like depot-tools-auth was removed a while back (, so the package is broken now.
