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>  sudo apt install libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3 # not required for all packages  sudo apt purge python-<service>  sudo apt autoremove --purge sudo systemctl restart <service>-* sudo systemctl restart apache2 # not required for all packages 
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>  sudo apt install libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3 # not required for all packages  sudo apt install <service>-<name>
sudo apt install python3-aodh libapache2-mod-wsgi-py3 aodh-api
 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.
 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
