  • Ticket #5484 – Description

    initial v1  
    11=== Background === 
    2 With python2.x loosing support sometime in 2020, we want to make sure our code is compatible with python3 before this happens. 
     2With support for Python 2.7 being discontinued in 2020, we have to make sure our code is compatible with Python 3 before this happens. 
     3 
     4Also 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.

    46=== What to change === 
    5 * Update the Build-and-Release-Tools' code to be fully functional with both python2.x and python3 
    6 * update the existing tests to also be fully functional with both python2.x and python3 and also be run with both versions 
     7* Update the Build-and-Release-Tools code to be compatible with both Python 2.7 and Python 3.5+. 
     8* Make sure tests run and pass with Python 2.7, 3.5 and 3.6.
