$ dnf repoquery --repo=rawhide -l python2-ironicclient | grep bin
/usr/bin/ironic
/usr/bin/ironic-2
/usr/bin/ironic-2.7

$ dnf repoquery --repo=rawhide -l python3-ironicclient | grep bin
/usr/bin/ironic-3
/usr/bin/ironic-3.7


With the line of the https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal change I'd like to know:

What is the difference for the users, if they run ironic-2 or ironic-3? Does the Python version matter here? Note that the guidelines say:

> If the executables provide the same functionality independent of whether they are run on top of Python 2 or Python 3, then only the Python 3 version of the executable SHOULD be packaged, the python2 version MUST NOT be packaged.

Nothing in Fedora requires python2-ironicclient, so I'd like to drop it.
However I like to know the answers of the above questions first.

If the answer is "no difference", please drop the package.

I'll assume the removal is OK.
