An update on the transition to Python 3.6: Python 3.6 is now a supported
version in artful release, and almost all packages that build C extensions
have been rebuilt (pandas is still a problem).
We have created a PPA where python3.6 is the default and rebuilt all python
and the next step is to fix all the failures this reveals. The initial
failing source packages are listed in http://paste.ubuntu.com/24903638/
although some of those have been fixed now.
Once the failures are accounted for, we can flip the switch to make python
3.6 the default in the archive.
