unbound-libs creates unnecessary dependency on python3

unbound-libs creates dependency on python2 even though there seems to be no need for such a requires.
[fedora@localhost ~]$ rpm -q unbound-libs --requires | grep python
No file from unbound-libs doesn't seem to use python in any way. Linking to libpython is from libunbound.so.
[fedora@localhost ~]$ ldd /usr/lib64/libunbound.so.2 | grep python
libpython2.7.so.1.0 => /lib64/libpython2.7.so.1.0 (0x00007fb8a7d18000)

My proposal is to package libunbound.so from python3 build of unbound.

I think the libunbound.so should not be linked with python if not really necessary. I'll have to investigate if there is some good reason for that.

There seems to be $LIBS variable in Makefile which includes '-lpythonX.Y' and is used everywhere. I'm investigating possible change.
In the meantime I reported this to upstream:

Preferring Python3 build over Python2 for now. Leaving the ticket open.

unbound-1.5.4-4.fc23 has been pushed to the Fedora 23 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
