With python being eliminated in the next dot release of macOS Monterey (12.3), will Adobe be updating any currnet packages to eliminate python scripts.

For example, when expanding the latest package release of Reader (version AcroRdrDC_2100720099_MUI.pkg)

we detect a python script at --pkgs/application.pkg/Scripts/Tools/mergeplists.py

What immediate action can be done to identify and mitigate the use of python embedded in Adobe apps?

Adobe has not shared their plans, but clearly they would make the necessary changes to keep products running as Apple makes changes, at some point. Don't expect them to make changes for beta systems, or preannounce anything, or provide a channel to ask them...

Apple is just getting rid of an ancient/non-supported version of python(2.7). Adobe should be including a copy of python in the program directory or the could be building the runtime directly into the script.(They may not be doing this, but they will need to update to resolve any issues) I've built plugins that do not require apples version of python. I doubt adobe will be getting rid of python since they are rolling out a lot of 3d apps that will require integration with their non-3d apps. Python is a pretty standard way of doing this.
