Python 2 reached upstream end-of-life in January 2020. In Fedora, it's now provided from the deprecated compat package `python2.7`. It should not be added as a new dependency, as it was in sems 1.7.0-0.4.20200311.git.baad471.
If it's possible that the dependency won't be removed in Fedora 34, please request a FESCo exception. You can refer to the exception for mercurial as an example: https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/2243
It's good to mention:
- What is the reason for the Python 2 build dependency?
- What are the upstream/community plans/timelines regarding Python 2?
- What is the guidance for porting the build to Python 3? (Assuming that there is someone who generally knows how to port to Python 3, but doesn't know anything about the particular package, what are the next steps to take?)
If you need anything from us, or something is unclear, please mention it here.
Do you have any update?
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 34 development cycle.
