We would lost our backward compatibility for our scrips. There are some bot owner running
py 2.4 and I really would be glad if we could deny our support for this version. First
let's merge to the rewrite branch based on 2.5 and let the old stuff behind us. I
guess this will be done next year ;)

Betreff: [Pywikipedia-l] Why not Python 3?
It is obvious, that we will have to let Python 2.x to go one day. Now the
developers have been working on Pywikipedia 2 for a long time, and are
looking forward to release it. But what then? How long will itt work?
In the past weeks I was dealing with Python very much, and I have ideas on
vs. 3. I tried to guess the reason not to use Python 3. As far as I see,
main problem is with the big quantity of u"..."s. But I they can probably
converted py the 2to3 module. So what is the main reason to keep 2.x?
