Why? I plan to work on porting nova to Python 3. I proposed a nova session on Python 3 at the next OpenStack Summit at Vancouver. I plan to write a spec too.

I'm not aware of any real blocker for nova.

> What are your thoughts on how to tackle sqlalchemy-migrate? It looks like that is a blocker for several projects. And something I think we have wanted to move off of for some time now. 

I just checked sqlachemy-migrate. The README and the documentation are completly outdated, but the project is very active: latest commit one month ago and latest release (0.9.6) one month ago. There are py33 and py34 environments and tests pass on Python 3.3 and Python 3.4! I didn't check yet, but I guess that sqlachemy-migrate 0.9.6 already works on Python 3. Python 3 classifiers are just missing in setup.cfg.

I sent patches to update the doc, to add Python 3 classifiers and to upgrade requirements. The project moved to stackforge, reviews are at review.openstack.org:


The wiki page said that scripttest and ibm-db-sa were not Python 3 compatible. It's no more true: scripttest is compatible Python 3, and there is ibm-db-sa-py3 which is Python 3 compatible.

I updated the wiki page for sqlachemy-migrate.
