We need to test all the front ends with Python 3 and get them working
with it (front ends are both not well-covered by the testsuite, and a
place where bytes/string conversions are particularly likely to be
needed).  By front ends I mean the different web interfaces where
doc/installation.txt says "There are five web interfaces to choose from"
(and then lists six, not five), not just what's in the frontends
directory - all six need to be made to work with Python 3 for us to be
able to document Python 3 support as on a par with that for Python 3.

Regarding front end testing, issue 2141835 provides evidence that the
ZRoundup front end has not actually worked with current Zope for ten
years (so work might well be needed, beyond the patch in that issue, to
get it working with Python 2, before anything could be done to get
ZRoundup working with Python 3).

Also regarding front end testing, issue 2550821 (from 2013) provides a
patch reportedly needed with current mod_python.

Issue 2550566 is someone reporting having difficulty getting WSGI
working following the documentation (but without much information about
exactly what they did).
