I have started to port childsplay to Python 3. See also https://bugs.debian.org/936298

It is far from finished yet but it's a start.

I did never some programming with python, but I found this: a tool named 2to3 that helps a lot to port the code.


I am not shure if it is really 100% automated, but I am willing to test, if it is done.

Childsplay is in 'maintenance' mode for many years now and I don't have the time for such a large undertaking.

It would be nice if childsplay was ported to Python 3. Currently Python 2 is not an issue but it will become one after 2020 when Python 2 reaches end-of-life status. Debian and other distributions will start to remove Python 2 libraries and applications next year after the release of Debian 10 "Buster".
