Grenade just runs devstack on the old side (e.g. stable/rocky) using the
devstack stackrc file (which could have USE_PYTHON3 in it), runs tempest
'smoke' tests to create some resources, saves off some information about
those resources in a "database" (just an ini file), then runs devstack
on the new side (e.g. master) using the new side stackrc file and
verifies those saved off resources made it through the upgrade. It's all
bash so there isn't anything python-specific about grenade.
I saw, but didn't comment on, the other thread about if it would be
possible to create a grenade-2to3 job. I'd think that is pretty doable
based on the USE_PYTHON3 variable. We'd just have that False on the old
side, and True on the new side, and devstack will do it's thing. Right
now the USE_PYTHON3 variable is global in devstack-gate  (which is
the thing that orchestrates the grenade run for the legacy jobs), but
I'm sure we could hack that to be specific to the base (old) and target
(new) release for the grenade run.
