It Will Take Fedora More Releases To Switch Off Python 2

An anonymous reader quotes Phoronix:
Finalizing Fedora’s switch from Python 2 to Python 3 by default is still going to take several more Fedora release cycles and should be done by the 2020 date when Python 2 will be killed off upstream. While much of Fedora’s Python code is now compatible with Py3, the /usr/bin/python still points to Python 2, various python-* packages still mean Python 2… The end game is to eventually get rid of Python 2 from Fedora but that is even further out.

Fedora is now gathering feedback on a Wiki page explaining the switch.
