Python 3000 Status Update

Guido van Rossum:

Maybe a year and a half ago (not coincidentally around the time I started working for Google, which gave me more time for work on Python than I had had in a long time) I decided it was time to start designing and planning Python 3000 for real. Together with the Python developer and user community I came up with a Plan. We created a new series of PEPs (Python Enhancement Proposals) whose numbers started with 3000. There was a PEP 3000 already, maintained by others in the community, which was mostly a laundry list of ideas that had been brought up as suitable for implementation in Python 3000. This was renamed to PEP 3100; PEP 3000 became the document describing the philosophy and schedule of the project.

Lots of good stuff, and the schedule seems realistic.
