Python2 is officially deprecated. Is it time to move to Python3? See the py3 branch.

    This is becoming a bit more urgent since both Debian and Ubuntu seem to be retiring /usr/bin/python and python2 packages are no longer being updated.

    Would be best if we can figure out what Debian / Ubuntu’s plans are. /usr/bin/python2 is still fine, just /usr/bin/python is no good anymore. If possible we should try and avoid the situation we had with gcc/gfortran-10 where things broke just after the release.

    Otherwise, yes delaying might well be feasible though we may have to comb our python scripts eg GW150914.rpar for #!/usr/bin/env python or similar in the hashbang line.
