[arch-dev-public] Dropping python2 as a development environment

Hi All,

I would like to propose that we start deprecating python2 and only 
allowing to exists for:

* Make dependencies where required (js68, grafana-zabbix, etc.)
* Runtime dependencies such as (john, displayical, etc.)

This would basically imply that we drop python2-pip and 
python2-virtualenv from our repositories and with them tons of python2 

A follow up step is to consider dropping check() from python2 modules 
but I'd prefer to drop python2-virtualenv and python2-pip first and see 
what's left.

Another option is dropping all python2 optional dependencies, but this 
list is getting smaller every day. Postgresql should drop it's python2 
optional dependency by now.
