Hello Everyone,

Please find the final status for the py2.7 drop goal. Finally, it is COMPLETED!! 
With this (after three continuous cycles), I am taking a break from community goals (at least for V cycle :))!!.

Wiki page is updated: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Python3
I have added the 'Python3 Only' column here https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Python3#Python_3_Status_of_OpenStack_projects

Completion Report:
* Swift & Storlets are the two projects keeping py2.7 support.

* All projects have completed the goal and now are python3-only.

* It has been another roller coaster :) and I appreciate everyone helped in this work and
 all the projects reviewing the patches on time with few exceptions :). 

* A Lot of gate issues occurred and fixed during this transition especially making branchless
 tooling testing the mixed python version ( stable branch on py2 and other on py3).

* I finished the audit for all the projects. requirement repo will be cleaning up the py2 caps in Victoria cycle[1].

Some ongoing work on deployement projects repo or unmaintained repo:
These are dpendendant on other work for testing framework etc. This can be continued and need
not to be tracked under this goal.
* python-barbicanclient: https://review.opendev.org/#/c/699096/
** This repo seems unmaintained for last 6 months and the gate is already broken.
* Openstack Charms - Most of them merged, few are waiting for the team to migrate to Python3 Zaza functional test framework.
* Openstackansible - This will finish once centos jobs will be migrated to Centos8.
* Openstack-Helm - No conclusion yet from help team on what else to do for py2 drop.
