2.7 only came to my mind because:
* 2.7 is still supported for 2 years
* After those 2 years, no distro will magically drop 2.7 because
  there's still lots of legacy modules and applications using
  2.7. I'm not sure about other Operating Systems though.
* Dual 2.7 + 3.x support is doable but we'd have to evaluate if
  we really need it (as far as I know, 3.x is on every system
  available). You seemed a bit reserved about going full
  3.x a while back

What's the expected time to be spend per week on the project?

We have other bugs open, maybe I bring myself up to date on
GSoC is a bit fuzzy on what's "good enough" and what not, if you
compare for example GNU Guix and the projects Debian or FreeBSD
