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 python-speedtest-cli'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 python-speedtest-cli.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.
Please answer the above questions. If you don't, the package can be orphaned: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Information_on_Remaining_Packages
If you need any information or help, or if you need some more time, please let us know.
According to the procedure described in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/F31_Mass_Python_2_Package_Removal#Information_on_Remaining_Packages the package was now orphaned. If you think it was a mistake, you can provide the answers and claim the package back.
Let us know if you need any help or just need more time.
IMHO python-speedtest-cli should be retired in favor of speedtest-cli. They both package the same software, to the same location on disk.

I can confirm that the latest build does not depend on Python 2 but the comment#5 is correct - why not remove the duplicity?
