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 openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes, 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 openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes). So I opened a pull request: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes/pull-request/1
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.
openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes rpm is obsolete and needs to be removed. We are using container images and not rpms.
I don't know how to do that. Do you know how it is done or can you point me to someone that does?
Verify that nothing depends on it. (I've run these;l nothing does):
$ sudo dnf repoquery --repo rawhide --whatrequires openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes
$ sudo dnf repoquery --repo rawhide-source --whatrequires openvswitch-ovn-kubernetes
The retirement procedure is in https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life
but basically, it's:
fedpkg retire DESCRIPTION
Please do this only on master (i.e. Rawhide).
I did the retire. Please verify that the pkg is gone.
Confirmed. Thank you!
