Support Python 3.5

Governance community goal for Pike: Support Python 3.5

The OpenStack community has been working on porting to Python 3 since the Havana summit, following a long-term and multi-phase approach. Python 2.7 is scheduled for end-of-life in 2020, and is currently only receiving security updates, so there is a firm deadline for finishing the transition. We need to finish enabling Python 3 support so we can move on to future phases of handling upgrades, allowing downstream packaging to catch up, and eventually dropping Python 2 support entirely -- ideally all before we reach that end-of-life date for Python 2.
