There is no Debian 11 yet, we're only up to 10.

The current issue of Python is 2.17.16-1 which was issued last year.

debian 11 is under developent and testing at the moment. But january 1 2000 was end of life on python 2.7 yet the developers have not removed it from the testing builds. Fedora susie both have removed it. I was hoping debian would.

Ask on the mailing lists, the Debian developers don't visit here.

By the time Debian 11 is released ie as stable, I'm sure python2 will have been removed.
Come back in 2 years time. :)
