I suggest to switch after the branching in F32 only and than (re)consider doing a
backport before the F31 beta freeze.
Can you explain better what do you mean by that? I am little lost
here. Anyway, pointing out that Neal found python3 version for
him unusable and do not want to put it into rawhide.
There is suggestion about mercurial for python3 in subpackages.
I will prepare this week PoC for that, to provide at least some
way for users to have still working mercurial and provide the
benefit for developers to prepare for Python3.
I will send patch before I will do any changes in rawhide.
