I can see some value in each option.
Does 18.04 include a python 2 option? What is the target for completing the changeover? The first or second milestone for Stein, or the end of the cycle? It would be useful to have some input from the project teams who have no unit or functional test jobs running for 3.5, since they will have the most work to do to cope with the upgrade overall. Who is coordinating Ubuntu upgrade work and setting up the experimental jobs?
