Hello everyone,

We have been getting inquiries about the status of Avocado on Python 3
quite often.  The port has been going on for quite some time, but in the
last few months, it has seen a lot more activity.

So, one way we measure the port progress is to run Avocado's test suite
on Python 3.  Right now[1] all unittests[2] pass, and the functional[3]
tests status look like this:

test_argument_parsing.py: OK
test_basic.py: OK
test_export_variables.py: OK
test_gdb.py: OK
test_job_timeout.py: OK
test_journal.py: OK
test_loader.py: OK
test_lv_utils.py: OK
test_output.py: OK
test_plugin_diff.py: OK
test_plugin_jobscripts.py: OK
test_replay_basic.py: OK
test_replay_external_runner.py: OK
test_replay_failfast.py: OK
test_skiptests.py: OK
test_standalone.py: OK
test_statuses.py: OK
test_streams.py: OK
test_sysinfo.py: OK
test_teststmpdir.py: OK
test_thirdparty_bugs.py: OK
test_unittest_compat.py: OK
test_utils.py: OK
test_wrapper.py: OK

test_getdata.py: 1 pending issue: problem identified as variant IDs
change on Python 3 (due to hashing decoded strings, that is, bytes)
test_interrupt.py: 2 pending issues: test_badly_behaved_sigterm and
test_well_behaved_sigterm (AssertionError: Avocado was still running
after receiving SIGINT twice.)
test_output_check.py: 2 pending issues:
test_output_record_and_check_combined, test_output_tamper_combined

We're trying very hard to have this on the upcoming release (59.0), so
stay tuned, and if possible, join the code review and testing process on
the related PRs.
