It means Postorius (postorius), HyperKitty (mailman-hyperkitty) and
therefore the supporting project modules they import, mailmanclient and
django-mailman3 all require Python 2.7. Not 'at least' Python 2.7, but
Python 2.7 and Python 3 are significantly different. Programs can be
bilingual, but not all of Postorius, HyperKitty and their dependencies
are fully Python 3 compatible yet.
This means you need Python 3.4 or later for Mailman core and Python
2.7.x for Postorius and HyperKitty. These are quite capable of
coexisting on the same box and that is probably what you want, but it is
possible to run Postorius and HyperKitty on a separate box, but there
are potential security issues involved in exposing the core's REST
interface beyond 'localhost'.
