I'm opposed to switching the meaning of `/usr/bin/python` for AH
anytime soon. It's just going to break stuff, and to me the gain is quite
low. If you still propose to make that change for other editions and in the Everything
we'll likely need to override it.
Regardless, I can certainly take care of updating the Change proposal to mention
that the `/usr/bin/python` portion doesn't apply to AH, and we'll continue
to have `python2` installed by default, if that's OK with you?
As long as you figure out how to do it properly and as long as you
represent the AH maintainers and can make that decision for AH, I think
it's probably OK to put it there (I still don't like it personally, but
that's not good enough reason to not do it).
What about this:
Note that after Phase 1, nothing in Fedora uses /usr/bin/python any
more, so it should be safe for sysadmins to flip the symblink back to
python2 and we should provide a documented and supported way of doing
so. In the same way, the Atomic Host will keep /usr/bin/python pointing
to Python 2 regardless of rest of Fedora and possibly against upstream
recommendation in PEP 394, because of [reasons].
