Doug, I believe py27 will be supported till end of 2020 but distribution vendors (os people) are not yet deploying py3 as the default.

Could someone share the best information on when we may see Python3 be the default from the various os distribution providers. The date of 2020 for EOS leads me to believe that we're good until about the U or V release (assuming two per year) but I don't believe that's the correct way to plan for this, yes?
