Subject Re: Planning to port cqlsh to Python 3 (CASSANDRA-10190)
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2018 16:21:16 GMT
Support for, but not the very script, right? Because, as gently pointed

still the majority usage. That's only just now beginning to change. I 
think it will be more than 2 years before people begin asking what 
Python 2 was.
