Re: Python 2.x discontinued in Ubuntu 16.04

I also think that moving towards Python 3 compatibility is a must right now. We develop our own modules with double compatibility in mind, but it's not easy to contribute back to the core if there are no proper guidelines from Odoo to approach the migration process. Though "python" is still Python 2.7 in Ubuntu 16.04, it is not installed anymore by default, so it is necessary to download it to create Odoo's environment, making the installation process confusing for newcomers and more involved for sysadmins. Also, there are some tech savvy customers who happen to be worried about not having a roadmap for the Python upgrade, posing extra difficulty in the selling process. So, in my opinion, Odoo is overdue in the task of Python 3 migration and is a topic that should be taken into account as soon as possible.

As far i can see there are no community branches porting to 3.0, I
believe odoo will remain a 2.7 project for a long time.

That is slightly inaccurate. The only change isthat it will not be the
default install, but the 2.7 packages will be updated and you will
normally be able to run 2.7 programs.
