Python 2.7 will reach end-of-life in January 2020, over 9 years after it was released. This falls within the Fedora 31 lifetime.
Packages that depend on Python 2 are being switched to Python 3 or removed from Fedora: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Information_on_Remaining_Packages
Python 2 will be retired in Fedora 32: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RetirePython2
To help planning, we'd like to know the plans for openlierox's future. Specifically:
- What is the reason for the Python2 dependency? (Is it software written in Python, or does it just provide Python bindings, or use Python in the build system or test runner?)
- What are the upstream/community plans/timelines regarding Python 3?
- What is the guidance for porting to Python 3? (Assuming that there is someone who generally knows how to port to Python 3, but doesn't know anything about the particular package, what are the next steps to take?)
This bug is filed semi-automatically, and might not have all the context specific to openlierox.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.

openlierox contains some old, obsolete scripts to help people running

I will prepare an update for F31+ dropping the old python scripts, removing the python2 dependency.
I've just started a rawhide building removing the obsolete python scripts, closing.
