So what? Qt 3 had its last release (3.3.8b) in 2008 (and that was basically just a relicensing of the final 2007 release 3.3.8). Yet, we (mostly me) still maintain qt3 and backport security fixes where issues are reported to us, and Qt 3 applications still work fine. I have KSensors (a qt3/kdelibs3 application) sitting in my system tray all the time. It still works (thanks also to Plasma 5's xembedsniproxy). I also use Quanta Plus to edit HTML. It also works as expected. Just because upstream no longer releases something does not mean it has to disappear from distributions instantly. I see no other distribution being as aggressive about removing Python 2 as Fedora is. There is also a fork trying to keep Python 2 alive: https://github.com/naftaliharris/tauthon though it is unfortunately unclear whether the most important point (backporting security issues) will be taken care of reliably: https://github.com/naftaliharris/tauthon/issues/109 But it is always possible to do the backports downstream, as we are doing for the Qt 3 and 4 stacks.
