Sure I didn't mean to imply a proceedural -2 I meant to convey that at this
point in the cycle review focus shifts to priority items.  So getting attention
for this effort will be hard.

We did discuss that this (py3 support) was a great background task but we also
noted that those tasks would have a cut-off point.  I *thought* that was the
Nova non-priority feature freeze but I can't find that written anywhere.
