Description Petr Viktorin (@encukou) 2020-02-28 09:35:10 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 ompl, had a general exception to keep using it in Fedora 31. Now, the dependency should be removed.

Switching to Python 3 seemed easy to me (though I don't necessarily
know much about ompl). So I opened a pull request: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/ompl/pull-request/2

Could you merge it?
If not, 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.

Comment 1 Rich Mattes 2020-04-22 23:18:12 UTC
The "BuildRequires: python2" in ompl was left over from a python subpackage that can no longer be built, and is no longer needed.  I removed it in rawhide when I updated to version 1.4.2 last weekend, which should resolve this issue.
