The Koji team is working on getting a 1.17 release done by the F30 devel freeze in March which will drop the yum dependency and have a lot more support for py3.

The py3 stuff is definitely on the radar for Koji.  I'll check with the team and see when we can get this moving forward.

ngompa added a new comment to an issue you are following:
MirrorManager2 is already using Python 3 in Fedora, as of v0.9.0. It no longer uses YUM in its code.

Sigul does not use YUM itself, though it is broken because pygpgme was retired due to it being broken by changes in GnuPG v2. It needs porting to the official GPGME Python bindings and migration to Python 3.

Koji has pending pull requests to migrate to Python 3 and simultaneously drop the YUM dependency, but nobody is responding to feedback and the PRs are rotting:


At this point, we need _strong_ pokes to get Sigul (cc: @puiterwijk) and Koji (cc: @mikem, @dgregor, @tkopecek) fixed.
