[gdal-dev] Packages on PyPi vs. Ubuntu/Fedora

Hi gdal-devs,

GDAL on PyPi is already at version 3, while e.g. Ubuntu and Fedora still ship GDAL 2.
Thus, downstream Python packages that do not particularly specify to depend on GDAL <3 fail to build via pip3, cause pip3 tires to install Python bindings for GDAL 3, which is missing on the system.

Would it be possible for the GDAL package on PyPi to check for and pick up the (latest) GDAL version installed in the system?

That would make it a bit more convenient for users and maintainers of downstream packages I guess...
