Hi Jon,

there will be several cases to test;
the first I am rebuilding is python-setuptools
and it seems there are half of the packages to drop in 46.4.0

python-setuptools	python27-setuptools   drop
python-setuptools	python35-setuptools   drop
python-setuptools	python36-setuptools
python-setuptools	python37-setuptools
python-setuptools	python38-setuptools
python-setuptools	python-setuptools-wheel  drop

I expect to see other similar as all recent packages
are now only supporting 3.5 or more to 3.8


on python-setuptools-wheel, this file is not build/installed anymore


so I guess it was Py2 only
