I've made a start on this however alot of the tools that currently use py2 in the openvswitch source package don't have test coverage, so its a bit of a manual test process at the moment.

branch-py3 under ~ubuntu-server-dev contains work to-date.

Sounds good, what assistance do you require?

Should we make alternative package available to force python3 there and test in parallel?

At this point we may want to upload python3 based package asap, and continue fixing it upto 18.10 GA.
