Description (last modified by sebastian)


With support for Python 2.7 being discontinued in 2020, we have to make sure our code is compatible with Python 3 before this happens.

Also once we have migrated everything to Python 3, we can drop Python 2.7 support, which will improve and simplify the code base in the long term. This, however, is out of scope of this issue.

What to change

  • Update the Build-and-Release-Tools code to be compatible with both Python 2.7 and Python 3.5+.
  • Make sure tests run and pass with Python 2.7, 3.5 and 3.6.

Closing this issue, as we will phase out buildtools and replace it with some build system from the JavaScript ecosystem.
