Digigng into mailing list archives, we discussed this four years ago
for previous Port to Python 3 GSoC project [1].  There was also a
discussion in March 2014 [2].  Rahul, please read the threads for
background information.  Very interesting.

It was pointed out that collaboration will need care in testing.

I agree.

It was also said that the Fedora 18 development entrapment for the
OLPC XO-1, XO-1.5, XO-1.75, and XO-4 made a port to Python 3 less
attractive.  With these OLPC XO units now failing from old age, and
newer Ubuntu-based laptops available, this development entrapment is
less of a problem than in 2014.  I don't plan to package Sugar for
Fedora 18 with Python 3, but will instead maintain Python 2 branches
for as long as they are needed.
