About a year ago we reported the Fedora project was planning to phase out Python 2 packages as support for Python 2 was nearing its end of life. A year ago there were over 3,000 packages in Fedora which relied on Python 2, now around 1,000 remain and the effort to drop these packages before Fedora 31's release continues: "Python 2 is reaching end of life, and the current maintainers would like to orphan it. To prevent massive breakage, and to plan help with porting to Python 3, we will systematically track and remove packages that still depend on Python 2. The Fedora 30 change, Changes/Mass Python 2 Package Removal, continues in Fedora 31. We allow packagers to more easily abandon Python 2 parts of their packages (as an alternative to orphaning the whole package). We also start systematically collecting info on what remaining packages need to switch to Python 3. Finally, we'll use an expedited process to remove non-installable Python 2 packages from the distro." Details of the plan can be found on the Fedora wiki.
