Zope May sprint (remote only)
May is a good time to sprint on Zope. There are enough open ends …
Earl Zope has settled down for a good while in Python 3 wonderland. He made friends with the inhabitants and other immigrants. He enjoys his new live.
But even living in Python 3 wonderland is not only joy and relaxing. The Python 3 wonderland changes in a more rapid speed than the Python 2 land ever had before: Each year a new policy has to be fulfilled (aka new Python version release). Additionally it is time to drop the last connections to the old Python 2 land to ease the transformation in Python 3 wonderland to make developers and consumers happy.
Earl Zope is grateful for all the help he already gained: There where several Zope 4 releases and a first Zope 5 alpha version was just released. Even though Earl Zope still needs your help to:
- prepare dependencies to ease transition to new Python versions (aka make repositories more uniform to ease updating to new Python versions.)
- drop Python 2 support in repositories of dependencies
- support and test with newer Python 3 versions (aka current 3.9 alpha)
- improve and update the documentation
Feel free to join, you are welcome!
