Yes. But basically, I don't think we can rely on everyone porting their Ansible
code to Python3 anytime soon. Among other reasons, many, many organizations
will need their Ansible (and in general, "config mgmt/scripting") to work
RHEL7 and Fedora hosts. For Fedora Atomic Host (which may be different from
Workstation!) I don't see dropping /usr/bin/python as python2 until RHEL7 is
near EOL. Maybe we don't do security updates for it etc., but still.
If we don't switch it in Fedora until RHEL7 is near EOL, it will neither
be changed in any hypothetical future versions of RHEL, because RHEL
tends to be based on Fedora. And than you can say that we cannot do the
switch in Fedora until that hypothetical future version of RHEL is near
EOL and you will end up never changing it at all. The change has to
start somewhere and even though I cannot really speak about RHEL,
I would think that changing it in Fedora first makes more sense.
