Why not only creating a project on Github? Do we need all OpenStack 
tools for mox3? I don't expect much enhancements in the library. For me, 
OpenStack looks more restrictive than a classic Github project, it's 
more heavy to contribute (sign a CLA, use review.openstack.org, etc.).

I prefer mock over mox, the API is very different. mock is now part of 
Python stdlib (unittest.mock since Python 3.3). In the past, I ported 
some mox tests to mock, but it takes a lot of time :-(


Did anyone try to contact original mox authors? smiddlek is the last 
active contributor.

I see changes in 2012 in the Subversion repository of mox, whereas the 
latest mox release was in 2010 (mox 0.5.3).

It would be nice to merge back enhancements of mox3 (Python 3 support) 
into mox. It's annoying to have a specific project to get Python 3 support.

mox is hosted on code.google.com which is closing!
