GSoC: week 2

This has been a particularly uninteresting week of work, as I've expected. I have done some work towards making SymPy code Python 3 compatible, but there are no visible results - it just doesn't run in Python 3. As soon as it's possible to at least run SymPy in Python 3, I will begin publishing my branch. A hurdle is that SymPy should still be supporting Python 2.4 until the release of 0.7.0. Unfortunately, this release has been "imminent" for a while now. Initially, I was hoping to start integrating my work in small chunks as soon as possible. However, as this is the second week already, I've had to start some work in parallel. I only hope merging later will not be a problem.

It should also be noted that constantly re-running 2to3 is not a pleasant task. While this has some implications for testing, it's more importantly slowing down my work.

  1. I left you a note on IRC, but I don't know if you saw it. Have you read http://docs.python.org/py3k/howto/pyporting.html ?
