I noticed this before I posted. Somehow the fact that the Splunk Python SDK is going to support Python version 3 isn't very reassuring. If I do the command below on one of my search heads, I get over 1000 results. Splunk seems to use Python a lot, which is fine as long as they have a plan to migrate to Python 3, but does Splunk have a plan?

[splunk@hostname etc]$ find . -name "*.py*"
