[Fedora] Proposal for Python 3 Porting FAD
by Abdel Gadiel Martínez Lassonde
Hello Fedora Council.
My name is Abdel Martinez (fas:potty), from Panama and contributor of
Fedora Project for 5 years.
There is a change  that propose the implementation of Python 3 as the
default for Fedora 23. I think this change is one of the most important for
Fedora. It is a difficult task that, in my opinion, that could not be
achieved by a small group of developers.
As member of the community, I propose a Fedora Activity Day on November
14-15 to help out reducing the list of still-non-ported Python packages.
I emailed with Matej Stuchlik (copied on this loop), who has been very
cooperative helping me out identifying the list of packages that have not
been ported to Python 3.
We discussed the possibility of making this FAD, global, having
simultaneous events on NA, EMEA, LATAM and APAC. Right now we have only
point-of-contacts in LATAM (me) and EMEA (Matej).
In relation to EMEA, Matej told me about participating on PyCon CZ  as a
workshop. Maybe he could tell you more about it.
Regarding LATAM, I have an estimated budget of $3,000. This includes
transportation, accommodation and food (items listed in the wiki "How to
organize a FAD" ). Also we have the plan (list of packages) and
participants (right now are 6 members).
Hope you like the idea. Thanks in advance for reading this.
