While I understand the desire to get a head start on getting Tempest to run in Python 3, I'm not sure it makes sense to do this work piecemeal until we are near ready to introduce a py3 gate job. Many contributors will not be aware of what all the differences are and py2-isms will creep back in resulting in more overall time spent making these changes and reviewing. Also, the core review team is busy trying to do stuff important to the icehouse release which is barely more than 5 weeks away. IMO we should hold off on various kinds of "cleanup" patches for now.

+1 I agree with you David.

However, what’s the best way we can go about making sure to make this a
goal for the next release cycle?
