Yeah, git's stuff is nowhere even *near* python3 ready.
I have it on my to-do list to run 2to3 on the in-tree scripts as a
diagnostic, but I haven't had time to do that yet...mainly because
cvsps/cvsimport blew up in my face when I poked at them.
Now I need to go beat parsecvs into shape and run both it and cvs2git
against the CVS torture tests I'm developing, so the 2to3 check won't
happen for a week or two at least. Sorry.
As in a general thing, I wouldn't advise worrying too much about python3
compatibility. That version is not gaining adoption very fast, mainly
due to the rat's nest around plain strings vs. UTF-8 which can make
code conversion a serious pain in the ass.
