Hello Fedora Python package maintainers!

This is an announcement of a mass package renaming:
Python 2 binary packages will be renamed to python2-*.

This will happen soon after the F27 branching on August 15th.

Currently ~1330 source packages already generate a binary package with
the python2- prefix, and 835 remain to be updated. The spec files for
approximately 740 packages will be renamed, and 95 will be left for
fixing by maintainers or proven packagers.
Where did your list of 'all python packages' come from? I fear that there are some missing because wxPython should be in there.

I'll plan on fixing wxPython myself, but you may want to look into why it wasn't on the list as there may be others.

Thanks for noticing!

Unfortunately, I don't know of a good way to automatically tell if a package contains a Python module, or if it's an application that just happens to use Python. So, if a package doesn't have an unqalified "python-" prefix (or postfix), it doesn't end up on the autogenerated list, and needs to be added manually.
Ideas for better heuristics are welcome :)
