Spot checking the source packages in the archive currently, it looks
like Thomas already has most of these done.

By way of background there, a coordinated effort has been underway
for the last several years to get all OpenStack software working
with recent Python 3 interpreters. The slowest part of that work
involved reaching out to the upstreams of (hundreds of) dependencies
not maintained within the OpenStack community and either helping
them get working Py3K support, adopting defunct libraries so
OpenStack contributors could fix them directly, or in some cases
abandoning/replacing dependencies with better-maintained
alternatives. This really is an ecosystem-wide effort, as complex
Python software doesn't generally run in isolation. I expect the
story for other large Python-based applications is very similar to

Most OpenStack services and libraries are integration-tested
upstream to work under Python 3.5 today, but there are still many
Python-2.7-only testsuites for them (especially unit testing and
some functional tests) which need heavy refitting before the
community feels its Py3K support efforts are truly complete.
