cmpi-bindings-pywbem cannot be installed on F29+. This is because it requires 'pywbem', which no longer exists: only python3-pywbem exists on F29+, the Python 2 bindings are no longer shipped.
cmpi-bindings-pywbem should be checked for Python 3 compatibility, installed to python3_sitelib , and made to depend on python3-pywbem , or else dropped.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.
Please drop cmpi-bindings-pywbem, they don't install and hence are not beneficial to anybody. It's also a leaf package.
In preparation for the Python 2 EOL, we are removing all non-installable Python 2 packages:
This bug is still in the NEW state and the package does not install. Please indicate you are working on a fix by setting the state to ASSIGNED. When this bug is four weeks in the NEW state, the package may be orphaned.
Note that you don't have to actually fix this right now, setting the bug to ASSIGNED will just mark this as being worked on, so I'll know it is being taken care of. If this happens too quickly, feel free to reach to me any time for help (with specific problems).
(If you know for sure this package shall be removed, consider doing it.)

"Packages still failing to install due to a missing Python 2 dependency will be retired at Beta Freeze, assuming they have a Bugzilla bug open for at least 2 weeks. The package maintainer may postpone this retirement to the Final Freeze by promising to fix it until then."
Let me know if this package shall not be retired yet. The beta freeze is at 2019-08-29, the final freeze is at 2019-10-08.
Retired the package.
Requesting a freeze exception based on https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2216#comment-593925
A freeze exception for what, though? Why is this marked as ON_QA? I do not see an update listed above at all. If there is an update that fixes this bug, please mark it as fixing this bug; the blocker/FE process relies on the update being marked as fixing the bug. Thanks.
The package was retired. There is no update. I just want to make sure it won't be part of beta.
Sigh. I see. You want freeze exceptions for the *retirements*?
We could probably handle that differently than proposing individual FEs for every retired package, though :/ Retirements aren't handled through update pushes in any case...
I've verified that the package is gone from the fedora repo. Thanks and sorry for panicking.
