Can you please share the list of issues? I may take a look.

Python 3.5 is not supposed to break backward compatibility.

Sorry, I don't remember which one, but I remember that a project is 
running tests using the default (development) branch of CPython, and it 
already helped us (CPython) to fix issues before the final release.

I don't think that OpenStack has resources (CPU and manpower) to run 
OpenStack tests on top of CPython default, nor on a beta version.

But as I wrote, I'm interested to take a look at issues with Python 3.5 ;-)
