Building python3-du from python-du seems
more standard, i.e. less confusing,
but of course there's no difference from the technical side.
No matter which name is chosen, it'd be nice to kill two birds
with one stone, and do the merge together with an update of
python3-dateutil to version 2.4. Scratch build is here:

We are proceeding with a planned Change with Zbyszek acting on behalf
of the python-dateutil owner. He has already adapted
python-dateutil.spec to provide a python3-dateutil and, with the
relevant maintainers, we have been testing dependent packages with a
scratch build of that package.
The python3-dateutil package is around because upstream did not have
sources that would work with both anymore. That is no longer the case,
so the logical route to us is to retire python3-dateutil as a unique
srpm. The participation of they python-sig as package owners, and
insight on how to best transition, would be very helpful.
My apologies if this is encroaching on python-sig territory; we saw a
need for change and took initiative.
