Plan for dropping support for Python 2.7¶

Starting on January 1, 2020, imageio will stop supporting Python 2.7. The latest release that still supports Python 2.7 will remain available on Pypi and conda-forge. A branch will be made that may be used to continue supporting 2.7, but one should not expect (free) contributions from the imageio developers there.
