Improve CI to use conda-packages and python 3.6
Our CI infrastructure for this package still uses Python 2.7!
A list of points we should consider when upgrading this:
Use the latest beat-devel to install things like sphinx, nose, coverage and other required base infrastructure
Install beat.cmdline, core and backend.python from our conda channel (beta) - if that is not possible, ensure this package only tests against the "master" branches of each of those
Reduce specific package pinning to the minimal required
buildout phase should not install anything - the file
the scripts to build .so files on beat.core is being called from this package - maybe we should consider to distribute pre-built binaries with beat.core for such a purpose? In particular, inside
buildout.cfgwe call these - need to figure out a solution...
