When I worked at Canonical there was a goal to move both internal
public tools to Python 3.x version. IIRC started somewhere around 12.04
and today when you look at Ubuntu Touch you will not find Python 2.7
there. Similar with other tools.
Can it be done? Maybe not in a month but who knows - f22 cycle?
Perhaps this will be another victim of (in my opinion not very
wise) the decision not to have Python 3 in RHEL-7. For plenty of
people (and servers) who use RHEL-7 python 3 is still a problem.
Yes, I know about Software Collections. And yes, I haven’t
managed to make it working properly on my system (e.g., I cannot
just run a random python3 script with '#!/usr/bin/python3'
shebang with just software from our packages); and there are
almost no packaged libraries for Python 3.
