Dear OSGeo community,

the GRASS GIS dev team is working on a python 3-support/transition [1] of the source code in trunk [2].
winGRASS GIS 7.7svn daily builds with python 3 are already available as standalone installers [3] or in OSGeo4W [4]; see:

System Info

GRASS SVN revision: r74011                                                      
Build date: 2019-01-25

GDAL: 2.4.0                                                                     
PROJ.4: 5.2.0                                                                   
GEOS: 3.7.0                                                                     
SQLite: 3.26.0                                                                  
Python: 3.7.0  <==                                                              
wxPython: 4.0.3                                                                 
Platform: Windows-10-10.0.17763-SP0 (OSGeo4W)  

In [5] there are hints how to test it in e.g. Linux.

As the GRASS GIS transition to python 3 covers changes in many lines of code, a broader testing by the community is very welcome.

Problems and bugs can be reported in the GRASS GIS trac [6].
Thanks and kind regards
