In other words, those who want Python 2 to continue need to either bite the bullet and move their migration to Python 3 forward
Um, if they want Python 2 to continue, why would they migrate to Python 3?
One of the often-stated justifications for wanting Python 2 to continue is that the party wants to migrate their code base to Python 3, but “eventually”.
With that clause, I'm pointing out that “we can't find anyone to continue maintaining Python 2 the way we want for the price we want to pay for the length of time we want to keep using Python 2” still leaves the plaintiff with the option to hurry up and migrate to Python 3.
