For a full list of packages and versions, please refer to:

Python 3 support
Python 3 packages are now available for all of the above packages except
swift. All of these packages have successfully been unit tested with at
least Python 3.6. Function testing is ongoing and fixes will continue to be
backported to Rocky.

Python 3 enablement
In Rocky, Python 2 packages will still be installed by default for all
packages except gnocchi and octavia, which are Python 3 by default. In a
future release, we will switch all packages to Python 3 by default.

To enable Python 3 for existing installations:
    # upgrade to latest Rocky package versions first, then:
    sudo apt install python3-<service> [1]
    sudo apt install libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3  # not required for all
packages [2]
    sudo apt purge python-<service> [1]
    sudo apt autoremove --purge
    sudo systemctl restart <service>-*
    sudo systemctl restart apache2  # not required for all packages [2]

For example:
    sudo apt install aodh-*
    sudo apt install python3-aodh libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3
    sudo apt purge python-aodh
    sudo apt autoremove --purge
    sudo systemctl restart aodh-* apache2

To enable Python 3 for new installations:
    sudo apt install python3-<service> [1]
    sudo apt install libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3  # not required for all
packages [2]
    sudo apt install <service>-<name>

For example:
    sudo apt install python3-aodh libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3 aodh-api

[1] The naming convention of python packages is generally python-<service>
and python3-<service>. For horizon, however, the packages are named
python-django-horizon and python3-django-horizon.

[2] The following packages are run under apache2 and require installation
of libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3 to enable Python 3 support:
    aodh-api, cinder-api, barbican-api, keystone, nova-placement-api,
openstack-dashboard, panko-api, sahara-api

Other notable changes
sahara-api: sahara API now runs under apache2 with mod_wsgi
