    1. Convert our code to be compatible with Python 3.x. (For example, using “import future” and making certain that loops work on iterators instead of lists when the API calls return iterators in 3.x.)
      1. Cloudify confirmed 3.7; need centos version.
    2. Set up our plugin tox tests so that they are executed with both Python 2.7 AND Python 3.x.
      1. Upgrade all plugins (k8splugin/dmaap/policyplugin/relationship/postgres/helm) to support both 2.x and 3.7

    3. Extract monitoring API from HV-VES (KPI monitoring in Prometheus format + healthchecks)
    4. Write HV-VES events consumer client (question)
  18. Migrate to Java 11 (or 12?). The main reason is that Java 9+ properly identifies available memory and CPU cores inside Docker. Prior to Java 9 additional JVM options shall be set. Another benefit is that developers would gain few more language features. Also sooner or later we will need to migrate to new Java and having ElAlto a "maintentance" release it may be the perfect time. The main obstacle may be Java modularity, but in the beginning we shall be able to use old classpath instead of modulepath when running our applications.

  3. PNF re-registration event handling should not involve BBS-ep (update of AAI service status) to be moved into SO (HIGH)
