I completely disagree here. Fretsonfire is one package affected by the
Py2 removal but certainly not the only one. If it was the only one, then
there would be absolutely no question because the Py2 removal is more
important than a single package. But it is not the only one. There is
still a lot of time left, we are still in the middle of the release cycle.

What really saddens me is that people who either don't contribute or
very little to Debian Games try to force their agenda one year before we
freeze for Bullseye. I find that unacceptable to be honest. It's a slap
in the face for contributors who have already ported several games to
Python 3 and to be honest, it's a reason for me to quit this team
altogether if you remove fretsonfire one year before the freeze.

Sure, maybe we should just direct all of our users to flathub for all
our non-essential and non-important packages. Let's focus on the Linux
kernel, systemd, and some GNU tools only, that's the universal operating
system for you kids.
