Eh? F32 shipped with 2.0.0, and just saw 2.0.3 come through updates.
I believe F31 is also shipping 2.x now, and F30 has the COPR.

I suspect the incompatibility was forced upon them by dependencies in
the Python2->3 transition (eg py2 strings and py3 strings are not
compatible), and working around that would have required a
disproportionate amount of work.
