Planning upgrade: Python 3 check, Windows Add-on fails?

Path Finder

I am planning an upgrade to version 8.2.0 from 8.0.6. According to the documentation, I should be validating that my add-ons and apps are compatible with Python 3. I ran both the Python Upgrade Readiness Check and the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App; they both indicated that even the newest version of the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows, 8.1.2, failed the Python 3 check. Has anyone encountered this, and if you upgraded anyway, have you run into any issues?

According to the Splunk Platform Upgrade Readiness App, the add-on failed at:

Check 7: Python scripts

Status: Warning

Required action: Update these Python scripts to be dual-compatible with Python 2 and 3.

File path: ...\bin\log.py


Is this something to be concerned about?
