Python 2 reached upstream end-of-life in January 2020. In Fedora Rawhide, it's now provided from the compat package `python27`.
Packages that only use Python 2 at build time, like audacity, had a general exception to keep using it in Fedora 31. Now, the dependency should be removed.
It seems that Python 3 support was already merged upstream, at least for the bundled lv2 library which is the thing that fails when I replace "BuildRequires: python2" with "BuildRequires: /usr/bin/python".
If it's possible that the Python 2 build dependency won't get removed
in Fedora 33, please let us know; the package will need a FESCo exception.
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.
This package has changed maintainer in the Fedora.
Reassigning to the new maintainer of this component.
I am waiting for the upcoming 2.4 release before removing the build requires. That commit touches a large portion of code, so I don't feel comfortable cherry-picking into our package. Upstream is hoping to release 2.4 in May, so that should give plenty of time before the F33 branch/mass rebuild.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 33 development cycle.
Changing version to 33.
