Matthias Vallentin commented on BIT-1554:

Fixing this "soon" would probably only be possible via a hotfix release. But since this is not a Bro issue, it doesn't seem to be the right path. We currently have major refactoring of Broker underway. In this scope, we can also convert the current bindings to Python 3.

What should we do with Python 2 support? From a maintaining point of view, I'd say we should go with one version only, but I know too little about the deployment of Python 2.
