The Python 3 Porting Fedora Activity Day wrapped up this Sunday. In the span of ~48 hours and three continents, we’ve done a lot of things:
- 32 people had made 126 commits to the portingdb, with 3,803 additions and 3,226 deletions, making the portingdb more useful for everyone.
- We’ve filled numerous bugs for Fedora packages that lack Python 3 support, providing an updated .spec file for 9 of them.
- Best of all, 7 upstreams received Python 3 compatibility patches!
This all with the help of people from around the world, from all sorts of distros, cooperating on-line and off.
I’d like to thank frafra, michel-slm, fujimotos, michaeleekk, rodrigc, barracks510, fitoria, rupe120, decause, sayanchowdhury, Richard Sarkis, Sebastian Dyroff, Fale, dperson, fabaff, Riamse, carlwgeorge, MSK61, jflory7, mayorgatellez, staranjeet, QuLogic, hroncok, booxter, tyll, pigjuliux, williamjmorenor for making this awesome, and abadger, threebean and encukou for handling all the awesomeness. 🙂
One thing is for sure, this isn’t the last Python 3 Porting day! It’s been a lot of fun and we’ve learned a lot, so we would like to have another P3P Day in a month or two. Be sure to tweet at me, or join the #fedora-python channel on Freenode, if you have any suggestion on how to make it even better than it was. 🙂
