I see that some of you are working on Python 3 support for PyCrypto. I'll
admit that I haven't been paying much attention (I don't really use Python
3 right now), but I would definitely like to see this move forward.
Here are some guidelines for patches:
- Patches should be generated using "git format-patch" or "git send-email",
and sent to this mailing list, along with a statement that they comply
with the PyCrypto Code Submission Requirements - Rev C. See
http://www.dlitz.net/software/pycrypto/submission-requirements/, and take
particular note of the residency requirements.
(*insert rant about obnoxious crypto export controls here*)
- One master source tree. I only want to maintain one source tree, and
Python 2.x support is *not* going away any time soon.
- Must work on older Python releases, going back to 2.2. Ideally, we would
also continue to support Python 2.1, but I'm willing to drop 2.1 if
