Description Petr Viktorin 2020-02-27 16:13:48 UTC
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 mozjs52, had a general exception to keep using it in Fedora 31. Now, the dependency should be removed.

I guess this compat package could get an exception, similarly to mozjs60 and mozjs68:
https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2249
https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2264

But I don't know the package, so I'm asking you, the maintainers, to provide details on what needs mozjs52 and what the plans for it are in Fedora.
