+1 for the regression  run on py3 default platform. We don't need to run
full regressions.
We can chose to run only those test cases related to python. Categorically
we have
1. geo-rep
2. events framework
3. glusterfind
4. tools/scripts

I can take care of geo-rep. With following two patches, geo-rep works both
on py2 and py3.
I have tested these locally on centos-7.5 (py2 is default) and fedora28
(making py3 default by
symlink /usr/bin/python -> python3). Again the test was very basic, we can
fix going forward,
if there are any corner cases.

1. https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/21356/ (Though this is events
patch, geo-rep internally uses it, so is required for geo-rep.)
2. https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/21357/

It think we need to add regression tests for events and glusterfind.
Adding milind to comment on glusterfind.
