In line with the Mass Python 2 Package Removal , the following (sub)packages of newt 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 in Rawhide (Fedora 32).
Please don't remove packages from Fedora 31, it is past Beta Freeze.
Please don't do this for Fedora 30/29 either, removing packages from a released Fedora branch is forbidden.
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.
If you do the change yourself, it would help us a lot by reducing the amount of packages we need to mass change.
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 .
It seems there is still a package in the current rawhide which depends on python2-newt: system-config-keyboard. I see that it was orphaned recently, so I guess that won't be a problem.
system-config-keyboard was retired 4 days ago https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/system-config-keyboard/c/01411c1da57bf87610d766e3c00e9242d2c6fb96?branch=master
newt-0.52.21-5.fc32 has been built with no python2 subpackage.
We will probably need to update fedora-obsolete-packages.

I'm doing that in batches. Let me know if there is a need to obsolete this sooner.
