Help port Python packages to Python 3

This upcoming weekend, a group of Fedora developers are convening for the Python 3 Fedora Activity Day (FAD) to make more progress on porting Python 2 packages to Python 3. If you want to lend a hand, jump into the #fedora-python IRC channel on Freenode between Nov. 14, 2015 and 8pm Nov. 15, 2015 and introduce yourself.

Not only is this is a great opportunity to make an impact on the software that the community uses every day, but it’s also a chance to gain one of the more rare and exclusive Fedora badges, Parselmouth! To help show how you can help, Fedora Python maintainer Matej Stuchlik answered some of the Community Operations team’s questions on the Community Blog.

To learn more, read the full interview over on the Fedora Community Blog.

  1. Slightly unfortunate naming there – “Python 3 fad” 🙂

  2. Oh, I do like this badge and name. Too bad it was a time-limited thing. (Right?)

    • It was given out for the vFAD, but it’s not too late to earn it. You can hop in #fedora-python on Freenode and see if there’s anywhere you can help out with porting!

    I really like the initiative! There is an abundance of great code that’s still stuck in Python2. I would gladly join this fantastic coding venture, but my skills are still not to par, unfortunately :).
