I think it may still be too early to discontinue manylinux1, sadly.
Systems requiring manylinux1 are those with:
pip < 19.0 (Jan 2019) 
Linux distribution older than around 2010 (glibc < 2.12) 
I did a PyPI BigQuery  just now, editing to give results for 32,
and 64 bit (by changing the manylinux wheel name matching regexp).
Then I processed a bit with Pandas .
It looks like about 34% of PyPI manylinux*_i686 downloads are for
systems that actually need manylinux1, and about 17% of
manylinux*_x86_64. See the table in  for a listing of the top 10
