Well so far the only thing that happens is that the current maintainers will
orphan the python2 package. What happens next is, well.. unknown yet.
Well I am not planning to orphan the package as it is needed in EPEL-7
for a while.
Looking into porting stuff to python3 is a good idea, however I
understand what would be the benefit of putting python2 in a module.
Somebody would still need to maintain in.
I was mistaken and thought there was a short lived python27 module.
Since there isn't.. I will just retire in master.
