Unfortunately, this package will eventually be hurt by this new FESCo

without consent from you or another maintainer.
Let's be clear about the "culprit": Upstream decided to EOL Python 2 in
January 2020. Fedora 31 (which ships Python 2) will be a supported Fedora
release until ~ November 2020 so we have quite some time where Fedora's Python
maintainers will try to secure Python 2 on their own.
I don't think it is a valid option for Fedora to ship an EOL language for much
longer. Also any upstream project which did not start the Python 3 transition
over the last 3 years is essentially "dead upstream" which also leads to
problems getting bug fixes.
If you really need to run a Python 2 code base try packaging it for pypy. Due
to pypy's internals it will support Python 2 basically "forever" (see pypy
