Just because they've told me about it doesn't mean I saw it personally.
The ones I've seen, including new ones, are Python 2.

Some people here use Py3 but I haven't heard (or don't remember) enough
about what they're working on, to know if those are py3 codebases of any
size.  If they say yes, I'll take their word for it, but this is a
self-selected group of course.

People discuss Python language issues here a lot, but don't discuss as
much about code bases.

I know when I install a new OS (currently Debian 9 which was released
a month or so ago) and type "python" on the command line, I get Py2.
