This is the main page for the 2015 Python 3 Porting FAD, which is a FAD (a mini-conference) focused on working on the missing packages, libraries and applications that are not ported to Python 3 but are relevant to the release of the Fedora operating system according to the PortingDB app.

Purpose

One of the foundations of the Fedora Community is Features, which represents our commitment to excellence. Five years ago the Python 3 stack was added to Fedora, with the hope that at some point Python 3 will replace Python 2. About two years ago an effort was begun to make Python 3 the default implementation. There has been great progress, but is not enough. Here is why: Fedora has 2941 Python packages , which only the 32% have been ported to Python 3.
