    Fedora Update Notification
    FEDORA-2020-826b24c329
    2020-08-06 03:56:53.814289
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Name        : python2
    Product     : Fedora 31
    Version     : 2.7.18
    Release     : 2.fc31
    URL         : https://www.python.org/
    Summary     : An interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language
    Description :
    Python 2 is an old version of the language that is incompatible with the 3.x
    line of releases. The language is mostly the same, but many details, especially
    how built-in objects like dictionaries and strings work, have changed
    considerably, and a lot of deprecated features have finally been removed in the
    3.x line.
    
    Note that documentation for Python 2 is provided in the python2-docs
    package.
    
    This package provides the "python2" executable; most of the actual
    implementation is within the "python2-libs" package.
