If not, I will probably just convert this to an RM request as it seems gitso
is unmaintained upstream for many years.
I have in fact started to look into porting gitso to Python 3, but
haven't spent enough time on it to be able to say how long it will take
or if it will be doable with my (very limited) python skills. However I
still use gitso occasionally and would love to keep it around.
Do you have a time frame until such a project would have to be
completed? I was of the impression that I had until the bullseye

Yes, the target for Python 2 removal is bullseye release, but since the
removal is going to take a long time, work is progressing steadily. Since
gitso is a 'leaf' Python 2 package, that's why I poked this bug report.
The package doesn't look all that complicated. I can take a stab at
trying to port it to Python 3. If I get it working, perhaps I can ask you
to test it?
