Hello, I'm resuming work on Python 3 support for cqlsh (CASSANDRA-10190). As discussed before, the plan for this work is to get it working on Python 3 while keeping it compatible with Python 2.7.
I'd like to settle on a Python 3 release to be our officially supported tested version. It would be burdensome for the project to test and maintain cqlshlib on more than one Python 3 release. I recommend we pick the longest supported stable release available. That would be Python 3.7, which is planned to get its last release in 2023, four years from now. - Python 3.5 was planned to get its last major release yesterday - Python 3.6 is planned to get its last major release in December 2021, about three years from now Any feedback on picking a tested Python version for cqlshlib? I'm inclined to focus on Python 3.7 as we push toward finishing the ticket. Patrick Bannister
