Submission + - Grants Awarded To Kivy and NLTK To Boost Python 3 ->

mikejuk writes: The Python Software Foundation has made grants to help both the Kivy project and the Natural Language Toolkit port to Python 3. As missing libraries is often a reason for not moving to Python 3 this is the sort of action we need to say goodbye to Python 2. What is really surprising is the size of the grants — $5000 for the Kivi UI Framework and $1000 for NLTK. It’s small change for most software companies. It is amazing that just a few thousand dollars can move mountains in the open source community. We clearly need more informed philanthropists to push a little money in the direction of key projects — the shortage is most likely of "informed" philanthropists.
Let us hope that the move to Python 3 accelerates as a result.
