I'm +1 to the idea of dropping Python 2 support in general, but I'm not
sure we should really do it gradually (which is what would effectively
happen if some packagers start dropping now and others later, and others
not at all). It seems to me like it'd be cleaner to have a release note
on Fedora 30 that's just "Python 2 support dropped" and do it all at
It's not just all the Python 2 code that is packaged in Fedora though,
but also all the Python 2 code people are running on their machines.
By gradually (or sooner than Fedora 30) getting rid of all the
libraries and other Python 2 stuff it at least gives the option for
those people who get surprised to fix things before the Python
interpreter itself goes EOL and doesn't get security fixes.
