RHEL?s release process starts at forking a recent Fedora release. It
wouldn?t make much sense for them to undo the Python 3 progress that
happened over the past few years in Fedora ? including dnf, an
improved package manager written in Python 3. If the fork happened
today, the base release would be Fedora 26, which includes Python 3.6,
and some install options don?t include Python 2.
