'Solus (previously known as Evolve OS) is an independently developed operating system for the x86-64 architecture based on the Linux kernel and a choice of the homegrown Budgie desktop environment, GNOME, MATE or KDE Plasma as the desktop environment. Its package manager, eopkg, is based on the PiSi package management system from Pardus Linux, and it has a semi-rolling release model, with new package updates landing in the stable repository every Friday. The developers of Solus have stated that Solus is intended exclusively for use on personal computers and will not include software that is only useful in enterprise or server environments.'

I mean, if nothing requires it, why don't we just nuke it?

The reason of this diff was to clean python2. No problem for me to send a PR to remove this from our repo. This package was a dependency of lollypop and was removed in D6879.

Yea let's go ahead and just nuke this from orbit :) I'll disable its source repo. Thanks for the patch though!
