There is a syntax error in your configuration file: Missing parentheses in call to 'print'. Did you mean print("python exec:", sys.executable)? (, line 8)
make: *** [Makefile:33: html] Error 2

The file is in Python 2!!

It's required by a few other packages, so we'll have to keep it around:

sudo dnf repoquery --whatrequires python3-patsy
