OK, here's my opinion. I am not speaking for ZC. I don't think we
should worry until Python 3 is much farther along. I agree with
those who think that it will be hard to move to Python 3. Put
another way, I think the benefit won't be worth the effort. My
suspicion is that this will be true for *lots* of projects. I expect
Python 2 to be with us for a long time. This is just a wild guess. A
lot can change in a year or 2. I think our official position should
be that Zope is a Python 2 application and we'll evaluate
opportunities to leverage Python 3 over time as they present themselves.
I'm not going to reply to any replies to this post as I don't intend
to spend any more time on this issue myself.
