In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal , the following (sub)packages of python-wxpython4 were marked for removal:
According to our query, those (sub)packages only provide a Python 2 importable module. If this is not true, please tell us why, so we can fix our query.
Please remove them from your package.
As said in the change document, if there is no objection in a week, we will remove the package(s) as soon as we get to it. This change might not match your packaging style, so we'd prefer if you did the change. If you need more time, please let us know here.
We hope this doesn't come to you as a surprise. If you want to know our motivation for this, please read the change document .
While it's probably true that no Fedora package depends on these packages, they are useful for developers when porting from wxPython 3 (Python 2) to wxPython 4 (Python 3) as developers can first port to wxPython 4 (Python 2) as a first step, then worry about porting to Python 3. Perhaps we can hold onto these until we get most wxPython 3 packages ported to wxPython 4 (or decide to remove them)?
I agree. Do you have tracker for that we can block this on?

Not yet, but I will try to set one up.
Zbyszek, careful here, see the comments above.
python2-wxpython4 is now being used by grass.

> python2-wxpython4 is now being used by grass.
Doh! How did that happen. :-)
I'd like to open this bug instead of creating a new one.
python2-wxpython4-media and python2-wxpython4-webview are both marked as leaf packages and can be removed from rawhide. Do you think that after a year, they are still useful for porting from wxpython 3?
python2-wxpython4 has to stay in rawhide until we resolve the situation with grass package so we can block this bug by that.
What do you think about it?
And it seems that the latest build of grass does not depend on Python 2 anymore which will make python2-wxpython4 a leaf package very soon.
It is a leaf. My proposal is to get rid of the Python 2 bits.
Yes, I was thinking about doing this soon anyway, as it will make wxPython a lot faster to build, and this was not as useful as I was expecting for porting. I'll take care of it.
