Description (last modified by )
With Genshi having been ported to Python 3, we could start thinking about how we can achieve the same with Trac. As a first step, we should check if our dependencies have a Python 3 port:
|SQLite||builtin sqlite3, PySqlite?|
|MySQL||unofficial mysqldb or pymysql|
Version control bindings
|setuptools (Distribute)||works (3)|
- svn: not much activity on the bindings; rather go the svn.exe way
- hg: after 2 GSoC projects already, the efforts seem to have stalled
- distribute: seems ok on Linux, "works" more or less on Windows; might be worth to wait for distutils2
- docutils: seems it was ported and works on Linux, but
easy_install docutilson Windows hangs… Installing docutils-0.7.tar.gz also hangs, so it seems it's not distribute's fault.
Once we have at least one backend, VC binding and frontend ready, the next step would be playing with
2to3 and see what comes out.

Let's set the milestone tentatively to 0.14.
