Hello all,

My question is very straight forward: What version of Python should I use for Odoo 8? I've read that OpenERP 7 was built on Python 2.7, Odoo 8 came to change this? Would it be a problem to use Python 3?

Per a GitHub comment on 7 January 2015 by Odoo's Chief Technical Officer, they are targeting Python 2.7 for all current development.
