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

Submitted by mikejuk
mikejuk (1801200) 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."
