It's not saying you're a package maintainer for this package. It's
saying you'll be affected by its orphaning.
Search for python-which and you'll see it's because python-ethtool
depends on it, and you maintain _that_.
As Jason L Tibbitts III noted on IRC, the "culprit" here is dblatex,
which depends on python2-which and since gcc depends on dblatex, that
drags in nearly everything.
There is a pretty simple short term fix for this though: dblatex
upstream has been bundling python-which for over a decade, which is
being reverted in the Fedora package. Since python-which is dead
upstream, I see it as the lesser evil to not patch the bundling. Also,
dblatex will probably go away anyway, as was noted previously on this
list (it does not appear to be dead though, there has been a bugfix
release less than an hour ago).
