Strong reasons for the distribution were already discussed above, including:

Won't it take more total effort to remove things piecemeal rather than all
in one go, though?

issues that it brings
My understanding was that it's now too late to remove things from Fedora
28, and we want Python 2 gone by the time Fedora 30 is released. That only
gives us Fedora 29 as wiggle room, which doesn't seem all that gradual to
In any case, once we start removing Python 2 components, it seems to me
that the message to users is, "Python 2 can't be relied upon in this
release". That being the case, if we did go ahead with this staged
removal, would it be helpful to think of this change the other way around?
Rather than removing Python 2 from Fedora 30 but starting that work during
Fedora 29, we're removing it from Fedora 29 but not completing all of that
work until Fedora 30?
