I'm attaching updated news item, which will be committed soon. Stabilization has been delayed to 2010-04-21, but members of architecture projects can start testing now, to ensure that all potential problems have been found and fixed.

Title: Python 3.1 Author: Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis <arfre...@gentoo.org> Content-Type: text/plain Posted: 2010-03-23 Revision: 1 News-Item-Format: 1.0 Display-If-Installed: =dev-lang/python-3.1* Python 3 is a new major version of Python and is intentionally incompatible with Python 2. Many external modules have not been ported yet to Python 3, so Python 2 still needs to be installed. You can benefit from having Python 3 installed without setting Python 3.1 as main active version of Python. Currently you should not set Python 3.1 as main active version of Python. When setting it becomes recommended, a separate news item will be created to notify users. Although Python 3.1 should not be set as main active version of Python, you should run python-updater after installation of Python 3.1. By default, modules, which support both Python 2 and Python 3, are installed for both active version of Python 2 and active version of Python 3, when both Python 2 and Python 3 are installed. It is recommended to use a UTF-8 locale to avoid potential problems. Especially C and POSIX locales are discouraged. If locale has not been explicitly set, then POSIX locale is used, so you should ensure that locale has been set. Problems occurring only with non-UTF-8 locales should be reported directly to upstream developers of given packages. See http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/utf-8.xml for more information about UTF-8.
