Please note that the ticket there started off as a strong discouragement
of python2 packaging, but what was actually approved (and hopefully
today will be written into the guidelines by me) is simply an extra note
that maintainers are not required to package for python2 if they don't
want to (which really isn't a change in packaging policy at all). So
don't read the ticket title and believe that FPC has approved a blanket
ban of python2 subpackages.
To be completely honest, if someone wants to drop a python2 subpackage,
that's their prerogative but it does bring up an interesting question.
Normally if someone wants to orphan a package, they're welcome to do so
and others are welcome to pick it up. But this is about removing a
subpackage. If PackagerA wants to drop python2, but PackagerB wants to
volunteer to maintain it, the only options I see are:
* PackagerB offers to co-maintain the package, which will result in
PackagerA having to deal with the python2 subpackage anyway.
* The python2 subpackage gets generated by a separate python2-foo source
RPM that PackagerB maintains, and the original source package becomes
completely free of python2 stuff.
It may be useful to see if FPC will approve a blanket exception to the
review process for splitting python2-* source packages out of python-*
source packages, so that bit of bureaucracy can be skipped.
