Hi Patrick,
I can help with validating 14298. We recently merged in changes that got the 
nosetests for cqlshlib working on trunk. The test failures are mostly due to 
4.0 changes. We can either fix them and then migrate to Python 3 or we can 
directly fix the test failures once we move to Python 3.

I did a lot of work to make cqlsh compatible with Python 3 (and also Python 
2.7) under CASSANDRA-10190. CASSANDRA-10190 has been blocked by 
CASSANDRA-14298, which got about two thirds of the cqlsh dtests to work.
If somebody could commit to reviewing CASSANDRA-14298, I'd be willing to pick 
it back up and get it working with the current head of develop. That way we 
would be in a better place to address CASSANDRA-10190 and the Python 3 issue.

I saw that thread and the tickets. They haven't had any activity recently. 
Given that it is already Feb 2019 and Python 2.7 is getting close to EOL'd, I 
think it's worth moving forward with deprecating Python 2.7 support and adding 
3.0 support prior to 4.0 release. I am not sure what the timeline is looking 
like for 4.0 right now but it would be silly if we release 4.0 so close to 
Python 2.7 EOL.
