Something that occurred to me last night, rather than a conditional on Fedora version, is there a macro that we could provide to mean python2 is available in this Fedora version?  That way packagers wanting to support their packages on the versions of python that the platform ships can conditionalize on that imstead of fedora release (which is variable depending on whether someone picked up and drops support for the orphaned python 2 package)

I notice that [1] does not update, though if you click on a specific
package, that page does update.  For an example:
