See tracker.

Unfortunately it looks like the latest release still considers this a basic dependency.  Upstream does have removal of python v2 support on their recent roadmap, and I'll open an upstream issue to track this.  Looking around I didn't find any distros that have addressed this yet.
Comment 2 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2022-12-25 17:45:50 UTC
Update: upstream has indicated that this is a priority for them and they're working on this now.  They expect to have the changes in git in the next month, though I'm not sure what their release timeline is.  In any case I'll monitor the situation - please ping me if this starts to become rate-limiting for Gentoo.
Comment 3 Richard Freeman gentoo-dev 2023-08-31 10:54:26 UTC
This has been fixed in v2 which is now in the repo.  This is a very large release, so I'm going to let it stabilize normally, and leave this open until the old versions are gone.

Just ping me if it becomes necessary to push this faster.
