Is there a way to check all packages for unversioned python shebangs?
(Install and grep them all, add a rpmlint check, whatever?)

After collecting this information, contact the package maintainers and
ask them to fix the shebang (ideally by putting py3 there ;-)

That would be much better (and less painful) than finding all the
breakage after doing the switch ;-)


Even if I wanted to be proactive I suspect I support 50 or more
packages with python involvement. Some form of automated tool to make
sure all is well is pretty important.
